Rady Idea Challenge

About

CIID Rady Idea Challenge

The Rady Idea Challenge, exclusively for first-year Rady graduate-level students (includes MBA, MSBA, MFin, MPAc), invites you to observe the world around you and think about the things you experience and think about pain points. 

Identify a problem! Where is there “pain?” Propose a solution!

Think it through — and have fun:

  • What value does my solution provide my customers? 
  • What pain does my solution relieve?
  • How many customers do I have? 
  • How large is/are my market(s)?
  • How is my solution different/better than alternatives?
  • How do I generate revenue?

To participate, submit a one-page summary or a short video (~2 minutes) that considers the questions above. 

GOAL
Be creative – experiment with entrepreneurship and innovation.  

ENTRANTS
Submit solo or as a team (all team members must be first-year Rady students).
