Lyon & Bendheim Alumni Lecture
2008 Tufts $100K Business Plan Winner, David Greenwald, co-founder and Managing Director of Relay Technology Management, is speaking on Tuesday, February 12th, at 7:00pm, 51 Winthrop Street, Medford. Please register.
The Tufts Entrepreneurs Society and the Tufts Venture Fund are co-hosting the IDEA Slam on Wednesday, February 13th in Robinson 253 from 7:30-9:30pm.
James Barlow, Director of the Entrepreneurial Leadership Program and Inge Milde, ELP faculty and manager of the Tufts $100k Business Plan competition will help drive the ideation process.
What exactly is an ideation session?
Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas. So, at this ideation session, we will be using exercises, brainstorming techniques, and other mind opening activities in order to get thinking creatively. While the first half of the event will be dedicated to coming up with off-the-wall ideas, the second half will be focused on diving deeper on a few ideas and thinking about how we could bring them to fruition.
We hope that from this event, we will be able to take a handful of ideas to the next level and maybe even make a submission to the Business Plan Competition! And of course, there will be pizza!
So, what do you need?
• A Notebook
• A Pencil/pen
• An open mind!
Can’t wait to see you there!

Last Wednesday YES.OUI.SI., formally known as Boston’s Multi-Sensory exhibition space re-launched as a new type of production company.
In one eight-hour day The Brand Hack team revisioned YES.OUI.SI. from concept to design. The entire process took place in public and offered the community an opportunity to engage in our pivot in to the future.
Our main goal was to ready YES.OUI.SI. for its new mission as a multi-sensory exhibition production company, outfitting it with a new logo, a business plan audit, a social media and partnership strategy, and web design.
