The Technology Entrepreneur Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor announce the second annual Midwest Engineering Entrepreneurship Network (M.E.E.N.)
When: June 28 - 29, 2012
Where: Champaign, IL
We recognized the value in establishing an organization that would provide a forum for sharing best practices and methods for overcoming challenges unique to Midwest engineering entrepreneurship centers.
Staff from many entrepreneurship centers based in the college of engineering in the Midwest region are meeting for a shared discussion and networking opportunities.
At this meeting, you will:
- Meet other engineering entrepreneurship organizations in the Midwest;
- Discuss current best practices within our organizations (both in terms of curriculum and implementation);
- Discuss challenges particular to Midwest engineering entrepreneurship centers, and propose solutions to those challenges;
- Discuss the need and format of future “Midwest Engineering Entrepreneurship Network” meetings
We look forward to sharing and exploring new ideas and tackling the common problems we all face. We hope that you will plan to attend!
Please RSVP by June 8th.
Additional details will be forwarded upon registration. Please note that there is no registration fee for this event, but participants are responsible for providing their own transportation and accommodations.
