Exhibitors - Showcase your Resource

Note:  Sponsors and exhibitors will be provided with a table for showcasing their materials.   Please indicate any special needs on the registration form.  If you do not need a table or prefer to share a table, please indicate this where it says "special needs."

If you have a class, program, club, space, or other resources for Rutgers innovative and Entrepreneurial students, we encourage you to exhibit at the first ever Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship Expo held at Rutgers!

This event is free, and open to all students, regardless of school, major or year. It will showcase the multitude of resources, clubs and services available to Rutgers students interested in starting a new business and/or developing a new product. In addition, the Expo will include a student pitch competition and a mini career expo. We are expecting over 200 students to attend, so this is a great chance to inform students about your resource and showcase what you have to offer.

We are encouraging interactive and fun exhibits - think Rutgers Day.  In fact, feel free to use past Rutgers Day displays/exhibits/games if applicable.
