I am plugging a local conference put on by Young Inventors International (YII) coming up in April – and in particular,one of the events at this conference: the BRAINBUZZ. One of our blog authors, Aaron Tainter, will be speaking on a panel at the conference and will be taking part in the BrainBuzz – and we hope to see you there!
Young Inventors International (YII) invites you to attend…
YII’s BrainBuzz Networking and Brainstorming Event
Saturday, April 4th, 2009, 9 AM – 12 PM
Carnegie Mellon University
If you are interested in innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship Young Inventors International would like to invite you to network with more than 100 university and college student innovators and entrepreneurs in YII’s highly interactive and unusual networking event, where you will solve a series of brainstorming challenges and network meaningfully with all of the participants. The brainstorm challenges in the BrainBuzz will include technologies for the developing world, as well as local and non-local social ventures, and participants will have an opportunity to improve these technologies to benefit those in need.
Hosted on the Carnegie Mellon University campus by Project Olympus (olympus.cs.cmu.edu/)
