The DifferenceMaker semester has officially begun! We kicked off the semester last night at our Spring 2015 Kickoff and Idea Hack event in Moloney Hall at University Crossing. Over 70 students, varying from freshman year through graduate school, attended. Attendees included students, faculty and staff, from five of the UMass Lowell colleges.
Steven Tello, Associate Vice Chancellor for Entrepreneurship and Economic Development and Founder of the DifferenceMaker Program, and Jacqueline Moloney, Executive Vice Chancellor, kicked the night off with a brief introduction to the Program and the Spring 2015 Idea Challenge. Then, Holly Butler, Entrepreneurial Initiative Project Director, interviewed the 2013 and 2014 Campus-Wide DifferenceMaker teams to share with attendees the opportunities that come with winning the Idea Challenge. Afterword, attendees spent time discussing problems they want to solve, and shar
ed some tentative solutions and strategies.
Pizza and drinks were served, entrepreneurial ideas were brainstormed, and teams were built. This is just the start of an eventful, creative, and innovative Spring 2015 semester!
