Silicon Valley friends and friends of Michigan Tech,
You are invited to join me for a trip to Michigan Tech in October. This trip part is of our long-standing, bi-annual campus trips which have evolved over time and are now named “14 Floors.”
We will arrive in Houghton the evening of October 9 and depart on the afternoon of October 12. I’ll supply the customary private jet transportation directly from Minneapolis to Houghton and back again, taking care of the most unpredictable leg of the trip.
Think of it as a mini-conference, with the ability to pick and choose from the departments of your choice, one-on-ones with faculty and staff, student mentoring, lab and facility tours, etc. The remainder of the time will consist of group activities including panel discussions, business plan competitions, social gatherings, etc.
Student-focused activities are key during the visit, and both the School of Business and Economics and the Pavlis Honors College provide opportunities with entrepreneurship-focused students. We would love to have you be role models for these future leaders and help shape the programs that foster their growth. Finally, the social activities, including an annual event that allows networking between students, staff, faculty, and alumni will allow for more informal interaction.
I hope you can join us. Detailed flight information will follow.
