Day of Innovation sponsored by Jolt@TU Business

Day of Innovation (DOI) is an annual celebration of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial accomplishments of TU students. This event is sponsored by JOLT@TU Business and facilitated by NOVA Fellows and TU’s Stanford University Innovation Fellows.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. with speaker Mahendra Sekaran, TU alumnus and vice president of Intelligent Communications at Microsoft. Sekaran will discuss The Future of Work.

Innovation can be a new method, product, service or business model and can be found in every college across the TU campus. Students present their projects and attendees participate by “investing” in these projects by using “NOVA Bucks” to vote for their favorite projects. Students will receive money to continue the development of their innovative project.

The DOI awards ceremony will feature a keynote speaker from Tulsa’s I&E community, and will bestow participating teams with cash prizes as well as honors and recognition. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be provided during the event.
