OMAHA, Nebraska (May 10, 2023)—UNeMed is hosting another installment of its popular networking event, Idea Pub: Innovations and Libations.
This upcoming Idea Pub will directly follow a UNMC Design Thinking Sprint on May 17, at 3:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m. in the Wigton Heritage Center.
Idea Pub is aimed at University entrepreneurs and inventors, along with potential investors and commercial partners from the region.
“The goal of Idea Pub is really just to give inventors and entrepreneurs an opportunity to get together and talk,” said UNeMed President and CEO Michael Dixon, PhD. “I’m a firm believer that good things happen when creative experts across disciplines begin to interact and collaborate.”
This upcoming Idea Pub will feature remarks from Adam Royalty, Designer-in-Residence at Columbia Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Design. Royalty is a visiting guest of the UNMC Design Thinking Team and will also be participating in the two-day Sprint and Workshop events.
“I really didn’t know what to expect when I went to a UNeMed Idea Pub last year, but looking back I’m glad I did,” said T.J. Welniak, MD, Associate Professor in the UNMC Department of Emergency Medicine and Co-Chair of the UNMC Design Thinking Team. “Not only did I meet a lot of like-minded and innovative people, but the result has been the foundation of a Nebraska Collaboration Initiative Proposal and the theme for this upcoming Design Thinking Sprint.”
