We are conducting Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford to ignite awareness throughout the entire Stanford community about the importance of being entrepreneurial - whether that means starting a new business, developing an innovation for an existing company or solving a societal problem. To that end, we have planned a series of events to engage people in various dimensions of entrepreneurship. Each day will feature a different theme, such as Social Innovation, Technology, International, and others. Events will include presentations by prestigious speakers; roundtable discussions; a mixer for venture capitalists (VCs), students and entrepreneurs; VC/student "speed dating," allowing students to pitch their ideas; and a start-up job fair.
We will also host the Innovation Tournament, an "Apprentice-style" competition that will be open to student teams around the world. On Friday, February 22, be sure to attend the big Launch event and world movie premiere of ImagineIt!, a documentary featuring numerous students competing in last year’s Innovation Tournament.
