Thinc. at UGA Entrepreneurial Week

Successful entrepreneurs, including UGA graduates, will share their success stories and lessons learned as part of Thinc. Entrepreneurial Week, now through April 17. The Thinc. initiative is designed to help students, faculty and staff see the world of opportunities both local and global, and to start something in response.

That something might be a new for-profit company or a not-for-profit social venture. It might change something in your own neighborhood or community, or it might change the world.

In addition to the “Starting Points” entrepreneur panel, this year’s Thinc. Entrepreneurial Week will feature a “give back” hackathon; a talk on breakthrough innovation by David Butler, Coca-Cola vice president of innovation and entrepreneurship; a collaborative innovation competition; an extreme networking session, events related to social entrepreneurship, and a local arts and culture business summit.  

Please visit thinc.uga.edu for a full calendar of events, profiles of UGA students, faculty, staff and alumni entrepreneurs and all the information you need to get the most out of Thinc.
