Looking for a good idea? Want to brainstorm and get your creative juices flowing? Come to the Idea Jam at Bird Library with David Edelstein ’78, vice chair of the Syracuse University Board of Trustees.
Edelstein is an entrepreneur and corporate innovator whose career included positions in information management at IBM, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics (formerly Dade Behring).
He is interested in meeting students to share his experiences and help jumpstart some innovative thinking. Edelstein will be pitching a few problems he’s identified, and hoping some students will be interested in devising creative solutions. Students will also be invited to make flash pitches and get feedback on their ideas. The fun, informal session will explore the “art of the start” through brainstorming and idea generation. It will be an opportunity to see how the process of ideation can lead to problem solving and creative solutions.
The event is sponsored by the Blackstone LaunchPad at Syracuse University with the College of Engineering and Computer Science, Whitman School of Management, the iSchool and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
