Having worked with ND Idea Center companies in the past we had high expectations for Idea Week (April 21 to 29) but reviewing the schedule of events and guest speakers this event goes above and beyond.
Idea Week events include Ted X UND, the 89th Annual Blue & Gold game, a Tech Expo, Maker Faire. Keynote speakers include Daymond John, CEO of FUBU and a regular on ABC's "Shark Tank" plus Tony Hsieh, CEO Zappos, and world renowned violinist, Itzhak Perlman.
And there's more: Comedian Gavriel Iglesias and his "One Show Fits All World Tour", plus a McCloskey New Venture Competition, Patti LuPone, and the Thomson Reuters MBA Tech Innovation Challenge. Some entertainment events have a modest charge associated but registration for Idea Week is free.
