Welcome to SVIC 2013!! The SVIC encourages the generation of innovative, ground-breaking or novel ideas, products, services and technologies which could potentially become the seed of a new venture. The challenge welcomes students, faculty and staff to join! The SVIC has two parts to the competition. The first part is the virtual portion of the contest. Students will submit their innovative ideas virtually using this platform. Judges will then evaluate all of the ideas, narrowing the final showcase to 50 finalists. These finalists will then be invited to display their innovative ideas at the SVIC Final Showcase in SJSU campus on November 20, 2013. The SVIC aims to cultivate entrepreneurs and helps their innovative business ideas prosper into a reality.
