"The Annenberg Innovation Lab hosted the 2015 Evening of Innovation on Thursday evening to showcase the year’s Innovation Lab projects and six cutting-edge startups competing for a $10,000 funding prize.
The evening was sponsored by Maury Domengeaux and Blackstone Launchpad USC.
Each team completed the eight-week CRUNCH Student Design Challenge + Incubator program prior to the evening. The course consisted of activities that helped the startups test and develop their brand and consumer demand. Mentors also shared expertise with students during the business incubator to help improve the startups.
The night marked the second Evening of Innovation and the fifth year of the CRUNCH Student Design Challenge + Incubator."
