Entrepreneurs across the University will pitch their business ideas and create inventive solutions to common problems through a series of competitions and challenges held during Penn State Startup Week from April 1-5. The challenges are at the heart of Startup Week’s mission of teaching and inspiring participants to make innovation a part of their lives, communities and careers, either by starting their own companies or bringing a problem-solving approach to established organizations.
Those at Penn State New Kensington and in the surrounding Alle-Kiski Valley community are invited to explore their ideas at the upcoming 10-week Corner Launchbox Opportunity Accelerator course to be held at the campus’ innovation hub, The Corner, in February through mid-April.
Rhonda Schuldt has joined Penn State New Kensington as innovation coordinator in the campus innovation hub, The Corner, located in downtown New Kensington. Her goals for the campus and The Corner include connecting the campus and New Kensington community, as well as providing and linking resources to students, faculty, staff, startups, small businesses and community members.
How do you take an idea and make it a reality? That’s just one question that will be answered through a free, four-session workshop planned at Penn State New Kensington’s innovation hub, The Corner, throughout October.
Members of the campus and community are invited to attend upcoming programming planned at Penn State New Kensington’s entrepreneurial center, The Corner. The events are free and open to the public, but reservations are recommended. Programs are held at The Corner, located at 701 Fifth Avenue in downtown New Kensington.
