Welcome to the IdeaBounce® website for the Skandalaris Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at Washington University in St. Louis.  Since 2005, the IdeaBounce® site and events have helped early-stage entrepreneurs connect with each other and with the resources they need to help move their ideas forward.  In addition to this site for all ideas, we also have sites specific to the 2013 Olin Cup and 2014YouthBridge Social Enterprise and Innovation Competition.
 

We also make the IdeaBounce® website available to universities and community partners who wish to administer their own sites and host their own events.  Visit the following sites to see how others are using the IdeaBounce® concept and contact us at sces@wustl.edu if you'd like your own!
