Lectures, Speakers, and Traditional Events can only go so far. The Entrepreneur Workshop gives you a focused setting to implement what you’ve learned in the STL Innovation Camp. With the help of speakers, organizers, and other entrepreneurs you can take that learning to the next level.

Workshop Definition:

At the end of Friday & Saturday’s education tracks, attendees will be given an opportunity to vote on the topics that they would like to expand on. The most popular topics will be expanded in a hands on environment led by the speaker of the initial session (when possible) &/or an event organizer from the STL Innovation Camp.

 

Each 1 hour workshop will be run like a hands on lab focused on using the lessons learned in one or more real world scenarios. When possible, Innovator’s Cup business models will be the focus of the workshop.
