Entrepreneurship and  Innovation Week

Entrepreneurship and  Innovation Week

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.
