MORGANTOWN, W.Va. –The WVU LaunchLab hosted back-to-back workshops to support entrepreneurs and innovators across campus who were interested in starting a business or learning about various funding opportunities. Students, faculty, staff and community members attended the discussions to hear firsthand from innovation experts, investors and entrepreneurs what they need to know to potentially move their ideas and discoveries into market.
MORGANTOWN, WV – The West Virginia University LaunchLab hosted their first annual Manufacturing Day Pitch Competition. Participating students presented a five-minute pitch, highlighting a problem and solution for a physical product that could be manufactured. National Manufacturing Day ® is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers and occurs on the first Friday in October. With that thought in mind, it felt like the perfect time to use such an inspiring day as a kick off for this manufacturing focused event.
