It's never too late to jump start student innovation at the U of A!
If you missed our 30-day crowdfunding campaign, click here to make a gift of any size today!
We are so grateful to everyone who helped us reach our $5,000 goal! There's still time to make an even bigger difference for our students.
Every gift we receive will allow us to award more funding to student teams as they pitch their ideas in just a few short weeks. With your help, we can equip even more students with the resources they need to turn their ideas into reality!
There are innovative and entrepreneurial students all over campus working in teams to solve real-life social, environmental and industry problems. These students have opportunities across a variety of classes and extracurricular programs - on a social innovation team, in an innovation honors class, part of a McMillon Innovation Studio design team, and in a new venture development class.
These students get exposure to innovation methodologies and often develop new mindsets, but they are limited by resource constraints to accelerate their ideas. That's where you come in.
Right now, students are well underway working on solutions in each of these classes and programs, which is why funding is critical to the process! We have 30 days to raise $5,000 or more, which we will award to these student teams in a pitch competition next month where they will compete for funding! They are counting on this funding to accelerate their innovation. The more we raise, the more teams we'll be able to support and the more real-world impact we’ll have through these projects.
Give now to support students in jump-starting their ideas, so they have opportunities to create real-world impact! Funds will directly support customer discovery, market analysis and prototyping. Make a gift by October 18th and spread the word by sharing our project page (https://fundrazor.uark.edu/startsomethingar) on social media!
