Event Details:

Do you have the next big idea💡? 

If you answered“Yes!”, The Virtual QCC Invent-a-thon is the perfect event for you! Don’t worry about the HOW right now.

An invent-a-thon is where people come together to workshop their ideas.

This is the place where an idea becomes a reality. Any QCC student with an idea and willingness to brainstorm in order to walk away with a clear picture of the next steps is invited to attend!

Is that you?

At the end of the workshop, qualifying ideas will have the opportunity to receive continuing mentorship through the Spring 2022 Blackstone Innovation Cohort. Students who complete the program will receive a $2K stipend💰.

Bring any questions to the LIVE Q&A with QCC’s Blackstone LaunchPad director, Professor Mooney!



To kick off 2022, the QCC Blackstone LaunchPad Team is hosting three virtual events on Zoom! Attendance is NOT mandatory at all three events.
