Innovation Center Timehop Series Works with Local Company
The EDA University Center for Economic Development and Innovation recently held the Spring 2014 Timehop Series in the Innovation Center. Similar to Timehop's mobile app that allows one to "time travel" back to the past, the series drew from moments in the past to lead innovation students in inventing, testing new ideas, and networking in a fun, no-stress environment. The foundations for creative ideas that earn money were explored through the application of the Innovation Engineering system. One of the events, Create Night, brought in a local company to work on a real project with potential applications. This project enabled students to practice innovation techniques, generate meaningfully unique ideas with potential for commercialization for that company, and increase confidence while benefitting the local economy. The Innovation Center would like to thank LA Ash, Inc. for participating in this event. Also, working with several local companies and the Chamber Southwest, innovation students generated ideas to solve problems associated with community infrastructure and the upcoming industrial boom.
