User Experience is an overwhelmingly massive profession. It is one which lives in overlapping areas of psychology, design, and technology. That is why #UXBCon features 10 brilliant local designers from all corners of the trade with talks ranging from UI Animation to The Experience Grid.

Venturewell2) Venturewell’s January E-Team Stage 2 Workshop
Friday, January 23, 8:00am – 6:00pm
Twitter: @venturewell

The E-Team Program provides early-stage support and funding of up to $75,000 for collegiate entrepreneurs working on market-based technology inventions. Teams must be affiliated with a NCIIA Member Institution to apply.

Since 1995, our E-Team grants have been funding collegiate student and student/faculty teams to move ideas out of the lab and classroom and into the marketplace. The program enhances this opportunity by providing expert entrepreneurial and venture coaching, experiential workshops, and a potential investment opportunity to help realize the commercial success of the technology inventions and innovations that come through our organization.

Stage 2 provides additional funding of up to $20,000. A required, intensive workshop helps teams further develop their business model. Six monthly sessions of coaching follow the workshop, guiding the team from confirmation to execution of their business model.
