OPEN Annual Conference

March 15, 2022 - March 17, 2022

OPEN brings together members of the higher education innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E) field to share experiences and research, learn best practices, and forge dynamic new relationships. This year, our welcoming community will convene online to discuss the tools, trends, and new strategies that will collectively move I&E education forward and prepare early-stage entrepreneurs for an ever-changing world. 

OPEN offers content on the most pressing issues in I&E education today. During highly interactive and immersive sessions, you’ll gain effective new practices to apply to your class or program and collaborate meaningfully with fellow attendees—faculty, practitioners, and funders. We’ll explore proven and promising practices for: 

  • Research-based practices for teaching i&E in the classroom and beyond
  • Approaches to ensure all potential entrepreneurs feel included and supported
  • Leveraging partnerships and policy to grow your I&E ecosystem
  • Proven practices for integrating social and environmental sustainability into the curriculum
  • Foundational sessions for those just getting started in teaching I&E 

In addition to compelling sessions, we’ll host a mix of networking opportunities that range from content-rich and topically-focused to fun and informal. Special events like the interactive poster session and OPENminds Showcase give attendees the opportunity to connect with fellow attendees or student teams and breakout sessions are designed to maximize discussion and interaction.
