NUtech Ventures offering networking webinar Jan. 18

Green innovation

Want to learn the process of developing a network around an innovative idea? Uncertain how to propel an idea forward? Building an idea network is a great way to kickstart this process. An upcoming NUtech Ventures webinar, the first in its Pathway to Impact series, will help explore building these circles.

“Build Your Idea Network” will be held 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Jan. 18 via Zoom. Register here.

This webinar is targeted at any University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty, postdoc, students or staff who would like to learn the process of developing a network around their innovative idea that can support and propel that idea forward. The idea network is meant to be dynamic and transient in nature. One might actively engage with several idea networks at the same time.

Learning objectives include:

  • Understanding stakeholder roles
  • Mapping stakeholder universe
  • Identifying problem and solution spaces
  • Systematically assessing your network and mapping it onto the stakeholder universe
  • Identifying gaps in the idea network
  • Experience using these concepts during the workshop

Pathways to Impact workshops are designed to help researchers think about impact beyond the laboratory and the publication. The workshops will help doctoral students, postdocs and faculty members at universities adopt an entrepreneurial mindset to question how they ultimately hope their research and careers will make an impact. Unlike the local, regional and national I-Corps programs, participants in Pathways to Impact workshops are not expected to have a technology commercialization idea in mind.
