Innovators and entrepreneurs are constantly put on the spot to speak, and they often need to create compelling stories about their ideas. Join the Yale Exit Players, Yale’s oldest improv comedy group, for an interactive workshop where you’ll learn to speak on your feet with serious confidence, to craft quick narratives that captivate your audience, and maybe even learn the secrets to great comedy! This will be an active workshop, so wear comfortable clothing. Food will be provided.
Come celebrate the end of Tsai CITY’s first Startup and Nonprofit Accelerator, a 3-month experience for developing new projects that solve real-world problems with funding, mentorship and guidance from student Innovation Advisors. Approximately 15 teams from across Yale representing sectors ranging from education and renewable energy to finance and healthcare will pitch the latest iteration of their innovative project in 3 minutes (using only one slide). Find out how much progress these terrific teams have made and watch (and participate) as they compete for one of three funded prizes for Best Pitch, Best Innovation and Audience Choice. Judges will be announced soon. Fun breaks included! Reception to follow!
