Design Challenge Series

Presented by the Entrepreneurship Garage & Albright Entrepreneurs Village

We challenge you to show us your amazing ideas!

The Design Challenge Series is a team based event where participants will take on exciting design prompts to design and develop creative solutions.

Every month you or your team will have one month to design a solution to the given design challenge. During that time, you will have access to Entrepreneurship mentors who will be available to assist and guide you through the process.

Challenges will be specific and will change every month. Winners will be chosen by a group of judges at the conclusion of each monthly session. Winners will receive a special Entrepreneurship gift package, and will be showcased on the website and at the Garage.

All participants must be members of the Entrepreneurship Garage.
