How does Noodle work?

The Noodle accelerator is an intensive entrepreneurial education program through which students receive personalized programming designed to enhance and harness their creative problem-solving skills. At the same time, students have access to faculty, expert advisors and entrepreneurs with the specialized know-how necessary to help them develop and hone their ideas.

The program culminates with students and teams pitching their innovations to a panel of expert judges for the chance to win one of three Mary LESSLIE Hallward'74 Innovation Awards. The top student or team of students will win $10,000 in additional seed funding for their venture, while the first and second runners-up will be awarded seed funding valued at up to $1,000 and $400, respectively.
