UWM’s largest celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation

Celebrating UWM’s Innovators

UWM’s Innovators Expo is an annual celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship that showcases a collection of UWM community prototypes, ideas, startups, student orgs, partners, classes, and innovations in an exhibit format.

This is an opportunity for participants to showcase their progress and hard work that has been made over the past year. There are also opportunities for participants to win prizes through our PantherBucks Challenge and the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center Staff Choice Awards!

The Innovators Expo is an electric event with attendees ranging from UWM’s Chancellor Mone, UWM donors, family and friends, and Milwaukee community members.

The 2020-2021 school year was the year everyone went virtual! View the 2021 Innovators Expo here.

The 8th annual Innovators Expo was held in person on May 4, 2023 from 5 – 8 p.m.
