Mark your calendars for the 11th Annual USC Stevens Student Innovator Showcase on Friday, October 13, 2017.

The USC Stevens Student Innovator Showcase is a USC student business competition promoting young entrepreneurs and their cutting-edge business ideas in all disciplines ranging from the arts and social sciences to engineering and medicine. During the daylong event, USC student teams present and pitch their startup ideas and prototypes to expert judges from the entrepreneur and investment communities as well as Trojan Family Weekend attendees to compete for thousands in USC-sponsored awards that can help to develop their ideas further. The most promising innovative student teams are selected as finalists to participate in an afternoon fast pitch round featuring 3-minute business pitches by each team to a panel of esteemed judges, and an awards ceremony for the winners.

USC students, parents, faculty, staff and alumni are welcome to attend this free event. This event is presented during the 2017 Trojan Family Weekend, which will take place Thursday, October 12 through Sunday, October 15, 2017 at USC's University Park Campus.

Each year, the USC Stevens Student Innovator Showcase features a keynote speaker who is a prominent member of the business community. Please stay tuned for details of the 2017 keynote speaker.
