About the event:

The Technology Innovation Challenge (TIC) promotes innovation education based on technology conceived by faculty, students and alumni of UMass Amherst. The competition is limited to technology-based businesses, and is meant to encourage science and engineering students, in cooperation with management students, to think of commercial applications of their work. The goal is for interdisciplinary teams to conceptualize a product with regard to its scientific and technological design, and then create a business plan for the product’s commercialization.

Judges of the competition are entrepreneurs, legal experts, and consultants who volunteer their time to meet with students who are interested in marketing their new ideas.

Teams that are competing:

Team Engineered Response

Team Prometheus

Team Rentabilities

Team Therapeutic Systems

Team Wideband Diagnostics
