Elevating Impact Lab 2020: Impact Partnerships 

PSU’s Elevating Impact Lab is an immersive weekend designed to activate PSU students as  change agents. With a Friday evening kick-off, and an all-day immersion on Saturday, work with your idea and  your team to develop a concept for a new enterprise. You will meet mentors from the community, and engage with faculty and staff to experience innovation in action and grow your entrepreneurial skills. Over the course of the lab, you will build a team, develop, refine, test and pitch a business concept.

The theme of the 2020 Elevating Impact Lab, Impact Partnerships, explores opportunities for innovation and business applications that will have a positive impact through partnerships between traditional business entities, non-profits and/or governmental agencies. (Of course, other ideas are welcome, even if they don’t fit the theme exactly.)

Begin brainstorming now: How would you create a product or service that solves a problem you live with? What partners would you need to have an impact? Some key topics to consider are: new modes of transportation, products that increase happiness or health, products that decrease stress, equitable access to healthcare,  and spaces and places that improve life, work and play..
