Northeastern University and its Center for Research Innovation are hosting a series of events through Friday as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week. The theme of this year’s incarnation of the initiative will focus on fostering a strong and engaged community by working across a range of disciplines throughout campus and beyond.
“The energy and passion for entrepreneurship is deeply seated at Northeastern and continues to resonate as our alumni create impact around the world,” said Tracey Dodenhoff, the center’s director.
Northeastern Global e-week kicks off on Tuesday from 1:30–4:30 p.m. in the Curry Indoor Quad with the inaugural B.I.G. Venture Fair, which is co-hosted by CRI and Career Services. B.I.G, which stands for business, innovation and growth, will aim to connect start-ups from across the Boston area with students eager to build partnerships or pursue a career at an up-and-coming venture.
