Do you have cool ideas but not sure how to bring them to life? Do you see problems in our world that you want to help solve? Join Epiic Innovations Summer Institute to learn the tools and strategies innovators, entrepreneurs and designers at BU and beyond leverage to transform ideas into impact while having lots of fun with friends. During the two-week program, students work in small teams to investigate challenges that matter to them and develop innovation solution ideas. Mornings include hands-on workshops led by experienced entrepreneurs to learn and apply innovation skills and entrepreneurial concepts. Afternoons are spent exploring innovative spaces across BU’s campus and the Boston community, giving students first-hand opportunities to build out their own ideas and hear advice from creative founders. The program culminates with a pitch showcase where teams present their ideas and prototypes to a panel of community investors, entrepreneurs, friends and family. Epiic Innovations Summer Institute is hosted at Boston University’s BUild Lab, the campus’ new student innovation center and in collaboration with Epiic Solutions.
