Invention to Venture Workshop

Time: March 25, 2010 - 8:15 AM - 5:00 PM

Location: University Center in Rangos 1


As an undergraduate or graduate CIT student, you know that innovation is a cornerstone of our curriculum at Carnegie Mellon's College of Engineering. As a result, many of you have developed or will develop pioneering technologies that you hope to one day market. In order to give you (graduate and undergraduate students) the tools necessary to successfully market and translate your ideas and innovations into society, one of our PhD students in the Biomedical Engineering Department, Sanna Gaspard, has planned a day-long Invention to Venture Workshop, which is co-sponsored by the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Association (NCIIA), Carnegie Institute of Technology (CIT), and Tepper, entitled "Leading the World Through Engineering and Entrepreneurship," which we hope will become an annual event.

This year the event will be held on March 25th, 2010 in the University Center in Rangos 1. The workshop starts at 9am, with a continental breakfast served at 8:15am. The event is free and open to all.  However registration is required. The highlights of the day include an introduction to entrepreneurship, an elevator pitch workshop, an elevator pitch competition, a keynote luncheon, and investor poster reception for students.

Because we know the importance of innovation, we have decided to open this opportunity up to engineering and business students throughout the Pittsburgh community and we would like to invite you to attend.
