VetPrep IDEA Competition

Sunday, March 15th

Location to be announced.

Do you have a great IDEA that could improve the veterinary field? If so, you will have the opportunity to join the VetPrep IDEA innovation competition exclusively for veterinary students! Just as VetPrep was started over 15 years ago by three veterinary students with an idea, the organization wants to provide support for today’s veterinary students to develop their own industry-changing concept. Ideas may include new products, tools, services, or technologies that will improve the veterinary field. Entries can be anywhere from the beginning of a concept to an actual prototype product; a very strong idea alone can go quite far in this competition! In addition, the 2019 VetPrep IDEA Competition winners will deliver a live pitch and presentation. More information coming soon.
