Hosted by: UA Committees on Innovation and Technology

A week-long talk series and design challenge promoting innovation, leadership, entrepreneurship, and action for a better future by bringing together people who inspire us to encourage the MIT community to stand up, get involved and bring their ideas to the world.

Between February 18 to 24, we plan to bring together innovators from various disciplines to discuss the journey of an idea from conception to production.

As an event by students and for students, our aim is to empower you as you tackle community issues you’re passionate about.
