This Week on Campus …

New Venture Challenge (NVC) Team & Idea Night TONIGHT

Want to develop a great idea? Tonight? Want to learn how to create and motivate a rock star team? You can do it tonight! Team & Idea Night is designed to address two of the most important aspects of starting a business: creating and developing a great idea and finding and thriving with the right team to turn the idea into a business. The evening will start with Zach Nies, CTO of Rally Software, who will present some great strategies for creating ideas and testing and refining good ideas until they become great ones. Even the best ideas go nowhere without a great team behind them, and Dan King, CEO of ReadyTalk, will present ways to create a team and help that team thrive in the often difficult world of startups. And its tonight!
