GBSN Member Innovation Marketplace

At the 2019 Annual Conference, GBSN is offering an opportunity to its member schools to pitch their innovative PROGRAM or IDEA at our members only meeting during pre-conference proceedings. Member schools will seek to impress a round table of their peers with a 3-minute elevator pitch. The program or idea to receive the highest roundtable ranking will have the opportunity to present their program/idea to all GBSN members in attendance.

Members will showcase their innovation in poster format – to be displayed throughout the conference venue.

Main objectives:

  • Showcase innovation
  • Illustrate how the impact of the innovation is (or will be) measured

The purpose of the GBSN Innovation Marketplace is to provide network members prime visibility at the GBSN 2019 Annual Conference. Its intent is to capture and promote innovation leading to change. There is no additional charge to participate in the competition.

A GBSN staff member will administer the design and print of each poster. Each poster will have standard formatting guidelines. In addition to the printed poster, a more detailed webpage for each project will be designed and included on the conference website. Each project page will be accessible through a unique custom shortlink and QR code included on the printed poster. The poster will reflect an overview while the webpage will include more detailed information.
