PVCC Entrepreneurship Education Center (EEC) is organizing a week-long Entrepreneurship and Innovation Week from February 10th to February 18th, featuring entrepreneurial leaders from PVCC and across Phoenix.
Sessions led by faculty, administration, founders and executives will feature discussions focused on the dynamics and impact of innovation and entrepreneurial thinking in arts, finance, law, service learning, health sciences, information technology, economics, career management, and business.
Given the COVID-19 crisis, all events will be virtual. The last day of this week’s event will host PVCC Innovation Challenge Competition scheduled for February 18, 1:00pm to 3:00pm, where PVCC students will pitch to win awards by presenting their innovative ideas before a group of judges.
