The Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge


SAN JOSE (KTSF by Lynne Ku)-

Can you imagine riding a motorcycle with a pair of 360 degree wheels?   It’s for real and one of the new designs introduced by 14 San Jose State University students in the Innovation Challenge hosted by the Silicon Valley Center for Entrepreneurship (SVCE).

The contest is an annual forum to promote creativity and entrepreneurship at San Jose State University by generating and showcasing ideas that can change the community for the better. There are 105 entries this year competing for 9 categories of awards. Over the past month students have been working diligently in teams to have their work shown in front of university professors, peers, and distinguished judges from surrounding companies in the Silicon Valley.

Contestants have three different categories in which they can win: Most Innovative Idea, Best Elevator Pitch and The People’s Choice Award.
