What are Innov8x Challenges?
Compete against other entrepreneurs to solve urgent industry problems
The Mines Innov8x challenges are a wonderful opportunity to experience growth and learning in the Innov8x program. We invite students to join their peers in crafting innovative systems to solve important business problems. Companies come to us with the task of solving an urgent issue they have, and the Innov8x challenges provide an exciting way to deliver a solution.
The focus of the program is to enable participants to develop the skills to solve important problems – in the community, in their company, or in government – and apply their exceptional engineering and technical skills to develop innovative solutions.
