Every year, you can count on the best in innovation programming at Brandeis Innovation. We produce speaker series events teaching the basics of entrepreneurship, talks by inspiring founders (many of them alumni), and chances to meet fellow Brandesians committed to innovation. Each spring, SparkTank features startups by students, faculty, and staff pitching to win funding. Over the summer, educational programming keeps the learning going. In the fall, the annual Showcase brings together the best Brandeis inventions in a celebration of the innovation community.
