Entrepreneur's Garage Series

The Entrepreneur’s Garage is a series consists of public interviews of successful entrepreneurs, primarily from the Information Technology field. The series is part of the Master's program in Computer Science and IT Entrepreneurship. Our distinguished visitors are interviewed by Dr. Fernando C. Colon Osorio, Associate Professor of the Practice of Computer Science. The series is open to the general public and is free.

The Entrepreneur’s Garage series captures the contributions, experiences, and lessons from America’s most successful entrepreneurs in the computer engineering, computer science, and software engineering fields. The goals of the series are: (1) highlight the contributions of those that have made the American economy the number one economy in the world; (2) share their experiences, hopes, and secrets of success with young and aspiring entrepreneurs; and (3) showcase the entrepreneurship spirit present within the Brandeis University community today.

What do our students say about the program?

“The CS & IT Entrepreneurship program has offered me a balanced mix of thinking and hands-on approaches, with plenty of room for entrepreneurial creativity. Also, studying together with students of different educational backgrounds coming from many parts of the world helps to create a very broad point of view on how different cultures work.” — MA student from Ghana

“After just three weeks in the program the world changed. For the first time in my life I go around my daily life looking at things differently. I no longer look at the world as it is but rather as it could be.  In every activity, every time that I browse the web, every time that I purchase a product, every time that I receive a service, I look at how I can make it better, how can I innovate, how can I create a new industry.  This is powerful, very powerful.  I feel that I can really make a difference in my country, in the world.” – MA from Rwanda
