The Innovation Quest competition started on Thursday with their first workshop. Innovation Quest is a competition for Cal Poly students to pursue their ideas. It is funded by alumni and hosted in cooperation with Cal Poly Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The first workshop gave students a chance to get motivated, get inspired and network with fellow innovators.

The goal is to win the $15,000 at the end of the competition.

Innovation Quest student ambassador Kaitlyn Henry said, “This gives them the money, the resources, and the opportunity to really turn this into something real and not just an idea sitting in the back of their head.”

The next workshop is on March 5, which focuses on motivation and team building. The top three winners will be announced May 5.
