UConn Today– Gamification may not yet be a familiar concept to many in the academic world, but thanks to courses taught by Jonathan Moore in the School of Business, UConn students are beginning to bring what they’ve learned in the classroom about this powerful user engagement tool into real-world settings.

Join the Competiton
Innovation Quest (iQ) wants to help you turn your idea into a prototype into a company. The purpose of this competition is to provide student entrepreneurs with the opportunity of chasing after that idea they always wonder about, and actually turning it into a real business. While students can apply to the Innovation Quest competition at any time, we highly encourage participation in each of the Innovation Quest Workshops we hold at the University of Connecticut Storrs campus.
Each workshop in the series will provide teams with all of the information they need to fine-tune their business ideas to give them an edge in the contest application. We will cover all you need to know to answer each component of the iQ application â that is, our aim is to give you what you need to learn the most about your idea, how to market it, who to market it to, and where you can expect your idea to go. Innovation Quest is not a business plan competition. It is, instead, a business competition.
Most importantly, each workshop will provide participants access to mentors â iQers, successful entrepreneurs, investors, and more! Innovation Quest builds networks and relationships that are priceless. Receiving feedback from mentors will help you sharpen your ideas, keep you constantly thinking, and provide you with the criticism you need to submit the best application you can to Innovation Quest.
