OPEN brings together faculty, administrators, staff, and students from the STEM fields to share innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E) experiences and research, learn best practices, and forge dynamic new relationships. This year, our welcoming community will gather in-person to discuss the tools, trends, and new strategies that will collectively move I&E education forward and prepare early-stage entrepreneurs for an ever-changing world.

OPEN offers content on the most pressing issues in I&E education today. During highly immersive sessions, you’ll gain effective new practices to apply to your class or program and collaborate meaningfully with fellow attendees—faculty, practitioners, and funders.

OPEN features a mix of networking opportunities that range from content-rich and topically-focused to fun and informal. Special events like the interactive poster session and OPENminds Showcase give attendees the opportunity to connect with fellow attendees or student teams and breakout sessions are designed to maximize discussion and interaction.

Check back frequently for updates, and sign up here to be the first to receive exciting OPEN news and alerts! Please contact us at if you have any questions or concerns.
