The Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar Technology and Entrepreneurship Symposium
APRIL 13, 2016, 10AM-3PM
The Marconi Society Young Scholars will be hosting a Technology and Entrepreneurship Symposium on April 13th, 2016 in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) lounge located on the 6th floor of the Stata Center (Building 32, Dreyfoos Tower) in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The morning session will feature a poster and pitch session for graduate students to exhibit their research to the Marconi Fellows and others in attendance, while the afternoon session will feature talks from startup entrepreneurs regarding the challenges and lessons learned in starting a company, some while still in graduate school. This is also the perfect event to meet and interact with Marconi Fellows.
Registration: Register HERE to present a poster and/or attend the symposium. Lunch will be provided to registered attendees. If you would like to present a poster, we ask that each presenter also gives a short 1- to 2-minute pitch. A projector will be available.
