To stimulate UCLA’s ecosystem of entrepreneurship, the BSC will be launching a speaker and event series in collaboration with Anderson School of Management, CTSI, and the Institute for Technological Advancement on campus during the first week of October (Oct. 1st-3rd). We welcome enthused graduate and professional students in all departments, as well as those ambitious UCLA undergrads! This week will be an excellent opportunity to learn from experienced entrepreneurs and connect with the appropriate resources on campus to launch your innovative career. Not to mention, you may meet your future business partner(s)–we know that most of the start-ups are run by a small team of 2-3 who often meet in the university sphere. Please join us as we usher in a truly inventive 2012-2013 school year here at UCLA.
