14 Floors – Fall 2018

October 15-18 will mark the 14 Floors spring visit to campus. Guests from California’s Bay Area, and SE Michigan are expected to take part in the activities at Michigan Tech. These include social and networking events with students, faculty, and staff, director updates on the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems, a focus on entrepreneurial programs and strategies with the Pavlis Honors College, “Office Hours” mentoring sessions with entrepreneurial students, and a discussion with the Computing & Information Sciences advisory group. In addition, a small contingency of Detroit area alumni from the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) will be participating in events, including the annual Bob Mark Elevator Pitch through the School of Business and Economics – for which the 14 Floors group will serve as judges. There will be multiple opportunities to meet with new leadership on campus, tour laboratories and learning spaces, and see students in action. A final wrap-up meeting will cap the week and serve as an advisory discussion for the overall program.
