Michigan Tech Husky Innovation Speaker Series Begins Friday

The Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship will host the first of the Husky Innovate Speaker Series at noon Friday (March 1) in the Pavlis Honors College Collaboration Space (M&M 722).

Faculty, students and staff are invited to join us for a talk given by Michigan Tech’s Andrew Barnard (ME-EM). Barnard is an assistant professor and faculty advisor for SENSE Enterprise.

Barnard is using lean business model development and customer discovery to start his own business, NanoSound.

NanoSound focuses on the elimination of noise from pipe and duct systems, like automotive exhausts and heating and ventilation pipes. Barnard will provide an example of an early business pitch and provide insights into the customer discovery process and business model development that has led to significant pivots in the start-up’s trajectory.

If you are an innovator or entrepreneur working on an idea with the goal of launching your own business, you are encouraged to attend. Registration is required, and attendance will be capped at 30. Lunch will be provided to the first 30 people to register.

The Husky Innovate Speaker Series is hosted by the Innovation Center for Entrepreneurship which is a collaboration between the Pavlis Honors College and the School of Business and Economics.
