Igniting the Spirit of Innovation
Saturday, 22 April 2017
This convention will empower impressionable and driven individuals by providing opportunities and inspiration to grow as entrepreneurs and innovators. There will be hands-on, interactive opportunities to learn skills that will be essential to whichever career path you choose after college. We hope this convention unites Rowan's different colleges and other Universities to create an innovative, collaborative network of talented and unique students of all different majors and backgrounds.
The convention will include keynote speakers, collaborative workshops, networking sessions, interaction with other entrepreneurs and innovators, giveaway prizes, and of course food! You will have the opportunity to learn from some of the most talented leaders and have fun while doing it. UIF is all about igniting innovation in a fun, interactive environment, so be sure to bring an open mind.
What is UIF?
The University Innovation Fellowship program through Stanford University's Design School teaches students to become change agents on their campuses. The program was created as part of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter). This is the first year Rowan has participated in the program and created a team of four students in its leadership circle. The team has learned from various Stanford professors, Google innovators, and successful entrepreneurs about identifying and addressing problems in the world. Our mission is to bring entrepreneurship and innovation to campus through Rowan's FIRST Entrepreneurship & Innovation Convention.
