If you’re an entrepreneurship educator or student, or from the wider world of I&E, you’ve come to the right place! VentureWell’s Open conference, taking place March 23-25 in Washington, D.C., gathers together representatives from across the I&E spectrum to share stories, start new collaborations and learn best practices in the rapidly growing field of technology entrepreneurship education.

Open 2017 will feature a wealth of informative sessions and time to network with a friendly and engaging group of attendees interested in moving the field forward. The conference is called Open to reflect both the welcoming culture of our attendees and the way the conference connects people across disciplines and geographies to grow entrepreneurship education.
