You think you know, but you have no idea. This is Verge.
A New Venue.
We’re moving across the street to Jake’s so we can finally welcome the under 21 year old crowd. If you’re of age, don’t worry, we’ll still have plenty of cold beer. Jake’s is a Purdue landmark, and they’re hooking us up with the entire lower level.
More entrepreneurs. More Developers. More investors.
The Purdue Innovation Club is lending a hand to make this our biggest event yet. It’s going to be an incredible opportunity to interact with the brightest students at Purdue and the most active entrepreneurs in the area.
The Hottest Pitches
- Kyk Energy - Our first student startup pitch, Kyk, has developed a flavor neutral energy powder. Come hear their story from dorm room to store shelf.
- Optimizer - Mikel Berger will be pitching Optimizer, an agronomics dashboard with some impressive traction numbers coming out of this past growing season.
- Fireside Chat with David Corcoran - I am tremendously excited to welcome Dave (CS ‘00) back to Purdue. A serial entrepreneur, he sold his last company to Verisign and subsequently Symantec. Additionally, Dave is an entrepreneur in residence at Elevate Ventures so we'll get some solid insight on startup funding.
Throw a reminder on your calendar. Light up fb. Tweet it out. Blast your email list. Whatever you do, just don’t miss out. Looking forward to see you all, 6pm on Thursday @ Jake’s.
