I coordinated a partnership between Innoblue, Penn State's premier entrepreneurship community, and Penn State Career Services. Through this partnership, I helped structure and carry out student outreach, company outreach, and marketing. I also helped to organize a panel in promotion of the fair and sat on the panel speaking about startup culture.

I supported our efforts for campus outreach initiatives. I worked on various design aspects of the summit such as geotag designs, creating the agenda, and designing our speaker and mentor pages. I also managed event logistic items with the event team on site including the videography, photography, speaker management, and more. In addition to these, I designed, built, and executed a volunteer committee to provide operation support during the Summit weekend. For more info, click here.

I planned and organized the launching of the NGS@Campus initiative. I was in charge of branding, marketing, operations, team coordination, and execution of the event. Through research and outreach, I secured a venue, partnerships, attendees through student organizations, speakers, food, panelists, etc. I delivered double our goal in applicants and got donations which made up 98% of our resources.
