The McGuire New Venture Competition and Showcase will feature 23 new ventures developed by 90 undergraduate and graduate UA students. Each team will present 3-minute pitches before a judging panel of entrepreneurial elites as well as display and discuss their ideas during an interactive trade show. Innovations include biomedical devices, fitness products, agricultural technology, e-commerce websites, social apps, childrenâ€™s educational products and much more.
