Does your idea solve a problem in a unique way? With IdeaStorm, University of Iowa students can share their business idea in two minutes or less with a panel of judges and an audience. After the presentations, the judges will deliberate and announce the winners and award the cash prizes. IdeaStorms are entry-level pitch competitions across the University of Iowa’s campus that encourage students to share their innovative ideas with others, all while familiarizing themselves with the pitching process.
