Event description
Creating breakthroughs at the intersection: When diversity of thought, inclusive networks and equitable impact connect we find innovation.

About this event

Entrepreneurs and innovators work to solve problems at many levels, but the most game-changing solutions come from the collisions of multi-disciplinary experts with a range of backgrounds, skills and knowledge. Together, we can forge new ways of thinking, generate new combinations in our approaches to problem-solving, and adapt to different contexts or environments.

This year we look forward to our ever growing community gathering once again to engage, learn and network with a vibrant ecosystem of leaders, creators and doers at entrepreneurship@UBC Immersion Week 2021!
