The Lundquist College of Business is pleased to be a lead sponsor of the Start-Up Nation: Sustainability & Entrepreneurship Symposium on Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the Ford Alumni Center ballroom. The event is organized, hosted, and presented by TAMID Group at Oregon (www.uotamid.com), a nonprofit professional student organization at the college that provides experiential learning to students across campus through business in Israel.
The symposium will feature Seth M. Siegel, serial entrepreneur and author of the New York Times Bestseller Let There Be Water: Israel’s Solution for a Water-Starved World. Siegel will be discussing his research, and how Israel’s innovative solutions to solve the global water crisis can be applied across the globe. Siegel’s most recent TEDx Talk on his book can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuAXi3L4G70&t=
The main purpose of the event is to educate and enrich students at the University of Oregon and statewide communities on the topic of Israel as a leading start-up nation. The event will provide a platform to demonstrate how innovation can be applied back to our own communities and urge students to be the catalysts of their generation through inspiring further student interdisciplinary interests in the fields of international business, innovation, sustainability, and entrepreneurship. Additionally, this symposium will showcase the value of having an organization, such as TAMID, on campus to serves as an outlet for undergraduates to seek professional, entrepreneurial, and hands-on learning through an international lens.
