[RE] Mix Denison Entrepreneurship Summit

David Howitt in a session with studentsIn celebration of the generations of creative problem-solvers, innovators and entrepreneurs from Denison, we are hosting ReMix: The Denison Entrepreneurship Summit. This event is for Denison, by Denison, designed to help you in your journey to learn, grow and achieve great things - created and led by our very own alumni.

ReMix provides opportunities to re-connect, re-imagine, and re-fuel一engaging alumni and students to discover new ideas, learn from peers, and celebrate the “something special” about Denisonians that is the foundation for so many interesting life experiences. This will not be your typical corporate retreat or conference.

Join us and be inspired by the lessons that can only be found in the complete stories of your fellow alums - the real triumphs and tragedies of the entrepreneurial path. Creators, visionaries, and innovators from a range of fields and industries provide the foundation, along with specially designed interactive sessions and workshops to take you a little bit out of your comfort zone and onto a path of growth and transformation.
