Team Formativity, IIA: Education Grand Prize + Audience Choice Winners, 2016


The Team. The Team. The Team.

Here at Michigan, we know better than most that the best outcomes are all about the
team. We are, after all, one of the most collaborative learning communities in the
nation (not to mention that we have a few über-successful sports teams).

So, first double check that your team and idea meets our eligibility requirements. Next, fill out the Application Form and sign up for an interview when prompted.

Finding Teammates

We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to find a team. We encourage you to come to as many networking sessions as you can. Reach out to us for ideas if you are feeling stuck. There are many opportunities on campus to connect with like-minded people with diverse backgrounds and complementary skill sets to partner with over the course of the 5-month program—and perhaps, beyond.

Whether you have an initial idea for solving a big problem or are just looking for something cool to join… there are two primary ways to get started.
