Learn How to Start a Company in a Weekend.

March 1-3, 2024

Friday: 5:00-9:00 p.m. | Saturday: 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. | Sunday: 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Bring your team and ideas, or conjure up something after you start jamming with others! Get your ideas out of the concept stage and enjoy free meals! Open to all students, faculty, and staff.

Join the Ideation Jam for an entrepreneurial weekend of idea generation, pitch training, and feedback from campus and professional mentors. Participants will:

  • Learn Lean Start-Up methods used by WiSys in their WiSys Big Idea Tournament.
  • Build cross-campus and cross-disciplinary friendships between and among students and faculty.
  • Conduct customer discovery and early market analysis (key elements that make or break a start-up’s success).
  • Meet experienced mentors, facilitators, and investors who want to see your idea succeed.
  • Learn about start-up business creation even if you do not want to start a company.
  • Gain a toolkit to turn your ideas into reality.
  • Ideation Jammers will be able to show off new skills in creativity, prototyping, pitching, and pivoting.

Note: The Ideation Jam concludes with non-competitive pitches in front of a professional panel and mentor-like feedback. Following the Jam, attendees are encouraged to stick around for the WiSys Big Idea Tournament PreQualifying event.
