The REV Ideathon is a 3-part series that provides a platform for Ross students and alumni who want to see their ideas come to life. Through Ideathon, we hope to bring people together and cultivate a community that supports the development of these ideas. Each part will focus on the various stages of ideating and business model validation. We hope to provide teams with the resources, tools, and feedback to see their ideas through. The final session will culminate with a pitch presentation to expert panelists, and finalists will be rewarded with initial seed funding.
