TTU’s “Eagle Works” competition this Saturday in virtual form

Tennessee Tech University’s “Eagle Works” student innovation and entrepreneurship competition, which is like the television show Shark Tank, is scheduled for tomorrow at 2 p.m. CDT/3 p.m. EDT.

Instead of the usual competition on campus, student entrepreneurs will compete live in a virtual webinar. The public is invited to view the event; here’s the link.

According to this news release, the participating students have formed 10 interdisciplinary teams from engineering, business, healthcare, agriculture, and humanities disciplines to solve societal problems. Each team has worked on its idea over the past two semesters, and faculty and university partners, including The Biz Foundry, have helped them with their research through a series of workshops, mentorship, and Eagle Works challenge events.
