Students

The Innovation Acceleration Student Club at NJIT University serves to inform and assist students in their new business endeavors.  It stresses that the pieces are already in place to empower students to do extraordinary things.  Students are encouraged to participate in the student club forum to generate and develop ideas for business ventures and competitions.

The club’s objective is to assist and empower students.  This objective is broad and simple; purposely so to maintain flexibility. Our primary objectives are to teach students what it is really like to start a business and help students win club-related competitions.

Students are welcome to compete in national innovation and entrepreneurial competitions, and are encouraged to enter the annual Newark Innovation Acceleration Challenge held by the NJIAC.

Here is a partial list of Innovation and Entrepreneur Competitions held annually:
