Purpose:

Put Your Product Out There (PYPOT) is a student-organized competition founded by the Tech Express Café management team and sponsored by the Executive Express Café, Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, and Technology Student Leadership Council. PYPOT competition aims to be conducted in the month of October in the FALL 2016 semester. 

The purpose of this competition is to encourage innovative minds to be more resourceful and to pursue their passions by using the technical and professional skills they have acquired while attending Indiana State . This competition will help provide passionate students with their first step in sharing their ideas and creativity so that they can begin their experience into related fields of business and entrepreneurship.

Assisting in the process of this competition, students will have access to the newly renovated Innovation Lab in the Business Engagement Center (Myers Technology Center room 003), as well as a number of other valuable resources to develop design strategies and product prototypes.

PYPOT will be open to all students of ISU but also looks to integrate particular courses and organizations with an intense focus on design and development concepts. By targeting these particular courses, PYPOT aims to supply students with additional networking opportunities, development strategies, and entrepreneurial experience that will incorporate dynamic inputs into the classroom.
