CSUSB students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to submit their cutting-edge ideas that will help change our campus, our community, or quite possibly the world!

The Annual CSUSB Innovation Challenge competition gives everyone at CSUSB the opportunity to team up, sharpen new ideas, and solve problems. The Event features two Open Pitch nights for the CSUSB community to connect and begin to form teams with people from all across the campus. Those teams then submit an online "intent to compete" for a chance to be selected in the chosen line-up to compete for $20,000 in cash prizes at the main event. JOIN US and see what new innovative ideas are emerging from CSUSB! SECURE YOUR TICKETS TO THE MAIN EVENT!
