What is Qualcomm’s Next Big Idea?

The interns may have the answer.

Earlier this summer, the 2013 Intern Idea Quest kicked off by challenging Qualcomm’s U.S.-based interns to imagine Qualcomm’s next big idea, and to develop a ground-breaking concept. More than 110 entries were submitted, and after weeks of deliberation by employee judges, 10 of the best entries were selected for the final showcase, slated for August 8, at Qualcomm’s main campus café.

Uplinq Conference 2013

Uplinq: Everything Under One Roof
