The Space Innovation Challenge is a graduate-level, week-long case competition that helps you make an impact, meet new friends across campus and from other top universities, and mingle with leaders of the new space industry. The case prompt will go live on October 31st and you'll have all week to hack on a space-themed business problem for the event. The following Saturday, teams will pitch their solution to a team of leading professionals in the new space industry.

This year's event will be virtual, so you don't need to be in Pittsburgh to compete!
