Networks Matter - Meet for an Alumni gathering to discuss Innovation

We have long talked about creating a group where alumni and current students can meet up and share their innovative ideas, stories, business concepts, entrepreneurial journeys and catch up with latest developments at the academy.

So here it is….

Where launching the first of what we are calling Innovation Summits where students, graduates and friends of the academy can meet up in our spiritual home at UCD Newman House and continue our discussions and stay in touch.

We have always believed that the students, facilitators, staff, guest speakers and host companies form a unique network that can be used to help with your own entrepreneurial journey. We will open up the first of these new Innovation Summits under the theme Network Matters and discuss how we can best utilise our unique network.

These summits will be informal gatherings where we discuss a particular theme in innovation, bring in guest speakers and discuss ways the academy can be more useful to the alumni and current students. They will be a forum for discussion, networking, discussing business ideas and any news and innovations of interest to the academy and the group.

This is the first time we’re running this so please let me know what you would like me to add to the agenda.

What would be most useful to you?

    Alan.. I think the problem solve opportunity would be great. For some of the students the option to do presentations to a supportful group would be beneficial.

    Thanks for everyone that could make it to the first meetup so send me your mails and thoughts about future events.

    It seems like it should be entrepreneurial focused, working on live projects, sharing stories, helping each other out maybe with more direct mentorship format eh academy staff (office hours?) and some sort of skills exchange.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
