Innoblue Announces Twelfth Man Venture for Demo Day

Innoblue is fielding applicants to take its twelfth man spot in the organization’s recently-announced Demo Day, a showcase of student business and social ventures that will be held on December 1 at 5:00 p.m. in the Beaver Stadium Recruitment Lounge.

Innoblue hasn’t announced the full list of ventures yet, but the ventures will largely be coming from Lion Launch Pad, Penn State Humanitarian Engineering and Social Entrepreneurship group, and innoblue itself.

It’s also a chance for your idea to be showcased. The twelfth man team application is already available on innoblue’s website. The options are a little confusing (apparently you have to choose whether your start-up is “web-based”, “aimed to help the community”, or a “for-profit venture”), and details as to whom you would be presenting  and in what format are a little vague, but if you have a decent idea it’s probably worth a shot. Who knows, maybe Mark Cuban and Peter Thiel will show up.

In an interview with The LION 90.7fm this evening, innoblue co-founder David Adewumi explained that, “Demo Day is a chance to show investors around the country that Penn State has talented and bright students.”

“This is less of an educational event, more of a showcase for Penn State and Penn State entrepreneurs.”

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
