Entrepreneurial Speed Dating

OVERVIEW

Entrepreneurial Speed Dating will focus on connecting like-minded individuals with innovative mindsets and relevant skills. The main objective of this event is to bridge the gap between concept and those equipped with the skills to enable a transition from vision to reality!

The speed-dating format can prove to be effective and useful beyond the search for a significant other. This dynamic will aid in helping to foster a stronger, more resourceful community for startup entrepreneurs in the State College area. This event will limit interactions to roughly four minutes, where entrepreneurs are able to pitch their ventures or skills in hopes of finding a team where their unique innovations, skillsets, and perspectives will fit and be valued. It is challenging to get to know someone in four minutes, but one can definitely get a glimpse of that entrepreneurial fire!

Regardless of if individuals are pursuing ventures that are pre-revenue or pre-launch, this is an opportunity to facilitate an environment that connects entrepreneurs to other talents, in case they are looking towards team expansion. Pursuing a startup or new venture is no small task, and entrepreneurs no matter how hard we try simply will require help from other talents in order to make the venture as successful and productive as can be. Being that State College is a small region yet is home to a rather large population, there are undoubtedly students and leaders in the Penn State ecosystem along with the general State College area that is seeking new talent to join their team or wish to get involved with the startup realm. Resources to facilitate this kind of peer-to-peer collaboration - from Innoblue's perspective - appear to be lacking in the community and we hope this event can serve as a remedy.
