The Idea Workshop is a speed feedback session for student startup ideas. Come get or give feedback, meet someone new, and help us increase the number of successful startups at CU.
We’ll start with a keynote about how to know if you’re idea is good. Following the keynote, we’ll form a circle with two rings. On the inside ring will be successful entrepreneurs , entrepreneurial faculty, angel investors, and venture investors. On the outside ring will be students with ideas. The students will get 5 to 7 minutes of one-on-one time with our guests to introduce themselves, share their idea, get feedback, and hopefully make a helpful connection.
It doesn’t matter how far along your idea is, or if you have an idea at all, you’re welcome to come, enjoy some food, and introduce yourself to the entrepreneurial eco-system in and around CU.
When: Nov 14th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Where: CU Discovery Learning Center’s Collaboratory (rooms 1B50 – 1B70)
