Academic units across West Virginia University are committed to collaborating productively
to support and provide resources to students who have vision for new products or
businesses. In this session, attendees will hear from students in a number of majors
and colleges at WVU, including Business and Economics, Mechanical and Aerospace
Engineering, and Agri-business. These young people truly embody the entrepreneurial
mindset and innovative spirit we want to foster in all our students, on campus
and beyond. Working in teams, they’ve come up with some exciting things to share.
You’ll also hear how the WVU LaunchLab, the College of B & E, the College of
Creative Arts and the Reed College of Media work together to ensure the success
of these teams. The panel will be facilitated by Steve Cutright of the Brickstreet
Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the College of Business and Economics,
and by Carrie White, the Director of the WVU LaunchLab.
