The ACC InVenture Prize is an innovation competition in which teams of undergraduates representing each ACC university pitch their inventions or businesses before a live audience and a panel of judges. Teams will compete for $30,000 in prizes and a chance to be the next ACCIP winner. Fifteen university teams will pitch during the preliminary round, after which five teams will be chosen to advance to the final round that will broadcast live on television and streamed online.

Interested Pitt students should attend the Big Idea Center launch party to learn more in the Fall Semester.
