On Nov. 17, 2021, the USC Stevens Center for Innovation hosted its 14th Annual USC Stevens Student Innovator Showcase, where USC student entrepreneurs pitched their startup and business ideas to compete for over $30,000 in cash prizes and additional in-kind awards (valued at over $30,000).
We kicked off this year's webinar series with a group of female founders who shared their triumphs and challenges in starting and building their businesses. “Female Founders: Beyond the Glass Ceiling” was co-hosted with USC Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE).
The inaugural USC Innovation Summit took place March 27, 2019 in Downtown Los Angeles. This new event showcased USC startups and technologies to the venture, business, and university community.
In fall 2018, Marshall School of Business MBA student Maxine Lau applied for the USC Stevens Student Innovator Showcase to win funding for Lahtt Sauce. She ended up winning the $2,500 Venture Validation award.
