Intro to Ideation

An immersive seminar that trains students through the ideation phase of their entrepreneurial journey

Bring Your Ideas to Life

Interested in being an entrepreneur but having trouble coming up with ideas? Or do you have ideas but are unsure if they are “good” or “bad” ideas?  This seminar will help you work through the ideation phase of your entrepreneurial journey and help you identify a good idea vs. a bad idea.

Students that are interested in learning how to become more fluent and creative at brainstorming, who want to learn about creativity and its role in ideation, and who want to be able to spot a billion-dollar idea should apply for this seminar.
