Meetups organized by the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship at Montclair State University.

We also host some of the region's top events at the intersection of tech and entrepreneurship, including New Jersey's only Google I/O Extended event in 2015 and 2014, through a partnership with the Google Developers Group of North Jersey.

We are in the process of creating a 3D design and printing lab - one of the largest university-based 3D printing facilities in the U.S. and one of the first housed in a school of business - that will include scores of 3D printers and several 3D scanners, and will offer rapid prototyping services for students plus the region's small and midsized manufacturing companies. We plan to hold a series of workshops so community members - in our Meetup group and beyond - can learn 3D design and printing.

Please join us if you’re an entrepreneur, aspiring entrepreneur, interested investor, or a service provider who caters to entrepreneurs.
