The Office of Enterprise and Entrepreneurship at Arizona State University's Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts announces its second annual Herberger Institute Mike Curb Student IDEA Showcase (Innovation in Design, Entertainment and Arts). Initiated as a forum for students to highlight their most creative and innovative ideas, the showcase gives each entrant two minutes — just 120 seconds — to share their story of creativity and innovation. 

This event will feature more than 20 current Herberger Institute students pitching to a panel of community leaders, which includes Carlton Turner, executive director of Alternate Roots and keynote speaker at the Fifth Biennial Pave Symposium the next day, as well as Julie Akerly, founder of Mesa-based [nueBOX] and a Pave Venture Incubator alum. Each of the Herberger Institute’s five schools will be represented at the event. First place will be awarded $500, and the audience choice winner will receive a $250 prize.

Read about one of last year's showcase winners. 

Join the Herberger Institute for this evening of networking, snacks and the lightning-fast sharing of Herberger Institute student ideas.
