Demo Day Pitches: The Commons Akron Innovation Accelerator

February 23, 2019 | 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Join us to support students and companies participating in The Commons Akron Innovation Accelerator Pilot Program. This is an important collaboration with Bounce, ConxusNEO, area universities, companies, business mentors and more which aims to attract, develop and retain talented students as well as create a sustainable pipeline of talent for area companies; plus, there is an interest to make this a year-round program with community support. Special thanks to Harvard Business School Club of NE Ohio for its support, too.

From 2:00 – 4:00 PM, student teams will present the findings from their innovation research with four companies – Goodyear, Main Street Gourmet, Consolidus and a local prominent healthcare provider. Participating students come from The University of Akron, Kent State University, Walsh University, The College of Wooster and Stark State College. Plus, networking will follow. Open to all.
