Ignite 2013 Entrepreneurship Conference
Wednesday, February 27-Saturday, March 2

Apply now to attend the Ignite Entrepreneurship Conference.

In collaboration with Rice University, the Ignite conference provides entrepreneurial MBA students with a chance to meet some of the most successful and up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the Silicon Valley. Students will hear the personal stories of entrepreneurs working to build their companies and learn from the successes (and failures) of the best-and-brightest that the Silicon Valley has to offer. Last year’s Ignite conference in Boston was a huge success and MBA student participants highly rated the experience.

This is an intense immersion experience. Field trips on the first day will be augmented with speakers on Day 2 and Day 3. A formal schedule will be emailed to accepted participants.
