McGuire Innovation Expo
The McGuire Innovation Expo is an opportunity for early-stage companies to showcase their products to investors and business leaders. The expo showcases startups in many fields, including biotech, medical devices, and digital health. It also features companies tackling global problems. Some companies are tackling global health, while others are tackling domestic issues like the opioid crisis.
The McGuire Innovation Expo is hosted on the campus of the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management. It is a one-day event with breakout rooms and student booths. Several student startup teams present their ideas, and some could become successful businesses that provide jobs in Tucson. The event is free and open to the public.
The Innovation Expo is a great way for college students to showcase their ideas. Students from Austin College, Stevens, and other colleges and universities pitch their products at the event. While design is often the final step, it’s crucial to get customer feedback before launching a product. This feedback is essential for a successful product. The event is open to the public, and attendees are encouraged to give feedback.
