What is IdeaStorm?

IdeaStorm is an entry level pitch competition 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. Participants submit their ideas via 1-2 minute videos. During the application process you must select which category to enter your idea in: Health Initiatives, Creative Concepts, Common Good or Consumer Solutions. The top ideas for each category will be announced each day the week of October 26: Health Initiatives (Oct. 26), Creative Concepts (Oct. 27), Common Good (Oct. 28) and Consumer Solutions (Oct. 29). In addition, the top video pitches will be made accessible on the Iowa JPEC website. People can view the videos and vote on their favorites, earning the participant extra cash prizes.
