Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford

Date:   February 22 -29, 2008
Location:   Stanford Campus (for details, see below)
Sponsor:   Stanford Entrepreneurship Network

Event details:  

Entrepreneurship is of enormous interest on campus, because the Stanford community recognizes that the 21st Century will belong to innovators who can turn ideas into action. This applies more than ever to today's students, who need to be self-starters and possess an entrepreneurial mindset, regardless of what they go on to do in life.

For Entrepreneurship Week 2008, SEN has again planned a series of exciting events to engage students in various dimensions of entrepreneurship. Events include presentations by prestigious speakers; roundtable discussions; mixers; VC/student "speed dating" allowing students to pitch their ideas; and a start-up job fair. Stanford will also host the Innovation Tournament, an "Apprentice-style" competition that will be open to student teams around the world. The acclaimed documentary film, Imagine It!, will also be making its world premiere (view the trailer); it captures the trials and tribulations of last year's Innovation Tournament and features numerous Stanford students.
