Virtual Innovataors Expo Information

While the traditional format of the annual UWM Innovators Expo is not currently feasible due to the circumstances, the expo is still happening – virtually. Participants will showcase their hard work through virtual booths, and the community is invited to give feedback and comment on the projects. While the Panther Buck Challenge will not take place, there will still be a chance for people to vote on their favorites and participants will have a chance to win some (real) money!

Celebrating UWM Innovators

Want to hear the latest and greatest ideas? UWM has a wealth of research and innovation happening on campus. In one space you can hear about new startup ideas while at another listen to the impactful research that propels innovation around campus.

PantherBuck Challenge

Each attendee receives three, one million dollars in PantherBucks. Each startup has a box at their booth to accept PantherBucks. Attendees then decide what startup is worth their investment. The startup with the most investments at the end of the night receives a real cash prize!
