For the past six years universities from Missouri and Illinois have sent up to five student teams to compete in the regional. New this year is the addition of the 20 KEEN engineering entrepreneurship schools (re: http://www.keennetwork.com/about-keen/) to the competition. According to SLU's KEEN Fellow Dr. Sridhar Condoor "We are truly excited to expand I2P to include teams from the KEEN schools as the students learn so much about the commercialization process, receive invaluable feedback from the expert judges and are eligible for thousands of dollars in prize money."
