The Crews Center for Entrepreneurship at the U of M will host their grand opening on Thursday, November 21st at 2 PM.
There’s not a ton of information on the U of M website about the event, so it sounds somewhat casual. This would be a great place to rub elbows with other business owners, and local executives. I would not be surprised if there are guests from some of the top companies in town, or city organizations.
There’s more information below about the Crews Center itself.
The Crews Center for Entrepreneurship encourages and supports a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship within the University of Memphis, helping faculty and student entrepreneurs as they focus their passion to commercialize their research, ideas and inventions into the foundations of successful startup companies.
The Crews Center houses a world class technology venture development lab with flexible co-working space for current and aspiring entrepreneurs, furnished offices for visiting investors and mentors, lab areas for prototype development, meeting rooms and more.
The Crews Center is the core of entrepreneurial collaboration for the campus – where great ideas and innovation are taken to a whole new level by joining together the top students and faculty of the University of Memphis campus with the best possible resources, people, technology and physical space.
