Events for prospective Venture Lab Applicants on March 5 & 28
Are you interested in applying to next year’s Venture Lab? Eager to join a team or recruit new teammates to your venture? Simply want to meet like-minded students and practice your public speaking skills?
If you answered “yes,” to any these questions, sign-up to attend a Team Generator Event to meet other entrepreneurial students! These events will include opportunities for 1-minute pitches from attendees, but you need to sign-up in advance to request a slot. Those who sign-up to pitch will receive more information about the process before the event.

Venture Lab Workshop: Saturday, April 14, 2018
Whether you’ve already started working on a project or have yet to hone in on an idea, the Venture Lab Workshop is a terrific opportunity to gain the hands-on experience needed to refine your concept. Expert facilitators will guide you through the process of defining an unmet need and developing prototypes to test your assumptions, so you can achieve problem-solution fit. This workshop is appropriate for teams that have already formed, as well as individuals who want to learn valuable methodology they can apply to a specific issue area.
