Spring 2018 Workshops: Get Inspired, Solve Problems, & Start Transforming Ideas

workshop banner

This spring, Innovate@BU is kicking off a brand new program series that will inspire new ideas, teach strategies for tackling social challenges locally and around the world, and walk through the steps from transforming an idea into reality.

Whether you’ve already started working on a passion project, want to join fellow students on a new venture, or maybe you’re still looking for that “ah-hah” moment, you’ll leave these events with new tools to help move innovation of all kinds forward.


Monthly Idea Night

What’s an Idea Night? A monthly meetup to crowdsource diverse perspectives and insights to help move ideas forward. It’s a chance to stir innovation at the cross-roads where different points of view meet and join forces. Gain feedback on your own ideas, or come and share your knowledge/expertise to help fellow BU Terriers!

Join us at these next Idea Nights:
