Business Model Boot Camp

January 20th, 5:00 pm, registration:
Do you plan to pitch at the Bob Mark Business Model Competition? Do you have an innovative idea that you want to develop further? Are you interested in starting your own business or leading an innovative improvement project? If yes, consider attending the Business Model Boot Camp – a virtual workshop, free to Michigan Tech students.
Using the Business Model Canvas, students will work with members of the I-Corps teaching team to develop a business model for their innovation. We walk through steps involved to help you understand the relationship between your value proposition and the customers’ needs. The more clearly you understand this relationship, the better your position to launch a winning product or service.  
If you plan to compete in the Bob Mark Business Model Pitch Competition, or if you’d like to learn how to develop a business model, this workshop is for you. There is a capacity of 15 contestants for our Bob Mark Business Model Competition. Priority will be given to those who have completed the Business Model Boot Camp.
This event is hosted by Husky Innovate, a collaboration between Pavlis Honors College, the College of Business, and the Office of Innovation and Commercialization

Graduate Language Assessment and Support (GLAS) Coach Spotlight

Graduate Language Assessment and Support (GLAS) is a free program for international graduate students who wish to improve their English communication and cultural skills.  Take a look at our coach spotlight on Kady Gehrke!

What do you enjoy about being a GLAS coach?
“I enjoy being a GLAS coach because I often feel that I learn just as much from my students as they do from me. They often tell me about their culture and their life back home. So I am able to help them to have an easier time speaking and interacting here, but I also get to hear about the wonderful things that they miss and love back home, and how similar some of it is to my own culture.”

Are you interested in trying out GLAS?  Learn more about our program and sign up with our online schedule here (link to
