About Elevating Impact Lab

PSU's Elevating Impact Lab is designed to activate PSU students into change agents. During two evenings and a day, you will work with mentors from the community, faculty, and staff to experience innovation in action and grow your entrepreneurial skills. Over the course of the lab, you will build a team, develop, refine, test and pitch a business concept. 
 
All PSU students are welcomed, with the option to receive credit available.
 

The theme of this Elevating Impact Lab, Better Cities Challenge, explores opportunities for innovation and business applications in our urban environment. Consider: How would you make life in the city better? Think Resilient buildings; sustainable energy; new modes of transportation; safe and inclusive spaces.
