Virtual Deshpande Symposium

Jun 10 - Jun 12, 2020 — Online

Co-founded by the Deshpande Foundation and the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2012, the Deshpande Symposium on Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Higher Education brings together academics, policy planners and practitioners to discuss best practices in integrating entrepreneurship throughout their college and university communities. This year’s event has been changed to a virtual format but we couldn’t be more excited to be a sponsor and present a panel with Bara Watts, Director of Entrepreneurship and the Center for Innovation and Impact at Oberlin College.

The Symposium offers over twenty-eight panel discussions and draws hundreds of faculty, administrators, students and business people to discuss an array of topics, including entrepreneurial culture and ecosystems, innovative entrepreneurship curricula, research commercialization, startups and emerging trends.

There is no cost to attend this virtual event but registration is required.
