This is the first event of its kind to be held at Texas State. Its goal is to take the intense creative atmosphere of a startup conference and apply it to forming research teams. This event is only open to registered participants.

Startup conference specialist Greg Tehven will be lending his talents to this pilot program designed to bring participants through the processes of brainstorming, creating and decision-making.  Events will conclude with the research presentation competition and a keynote by Art Markman from NPR’s “Two Guys on Your Head” on September 19 at 3:30p.m.
