Northeastern's InnoWeekend to Bring Students from an Idea to a $1,000 Reality

The Entrepreneurs Club of Northeastern University is getting people together of all career tracks, all with one thing in mind - innovation. For 48 hours there will be a hands on, brains on event to create an idea worthy of $1,000. "We're launching the program, because we've seen what can happen when students from different academic backgrounds cooperate on developing a product or business," said Northeastern student Gregory Allan. And while who doesn't want $1,000 reward for a great idea, Allan expresses another intended outcome of the Entrepreneurs Club's efforts: "Our main aspiration is that each and every participant in InnoWeekend gains valuable experience collaborating in an entrepreneurial setting in addition to making diverse connections that can persist and continue to foster innovation in the Northeastern community."
