ideation event invite + lead-up to SJSU Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge

Did you know there was an Idea Lab on campus? Let me guess–you had no idea, right?! Well it's true. It's a place (first floor, Student Union East) where you can get together with other students (and some faculty) who are into innovating new ideas and business opps. You can just drop in any time and start brainstorming with whoever's there. Seriously.

And/or you can go to the Ideation Workshop coming up this Thursday, 9/6, 4:30-5:45. (Note you can go to this and then straight up to the MISA meeting afterwards - see previous post.) The workshop is designed to help students brainstorm promising business ideas, and prepare them to enter the Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge (SVIC) in Fall 2018. Dave Hadden, seasoned entrepreneur, SJSU mentor, and SVIC judge, will work with students to explore techniques for generating innovative ideas, and discuss initial steps for validating those ideas in this interactive, 75-minute session:

But you must visit https://sjsu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cwg8l2vBdf6v3md to register for the event. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis as space is limited.

Either way, note that the deadline to enter the Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge (SVIC) is Thursday, November 08, 2018. Students are welcome to reach out to SVIC student advisors in the Idea Lab (SJSU Student Union) during office hours (1-3:00 pm, Monday and Wednesday).

You live in the world capital of innovation. This is where people dream big and make things happen. That can be you, too. Get out there and make it happen. Get to the workshop this Thursday. Go for it.
