Innovate @ Scripps
Innovate@Scripps is empowering Scripps women interested in entrepreneurship and business to learn more about the fields, found companies, and make change. At Innovate, we hold bi-weekly educational meetings, as well as weekly workspaces for those who are interested in starting to found a business in the near future. We also host inspiring and informative speakers. Innovate is completely student-run, and while we are a Scripps organization, we work closely with the entrepreneurship organizations at the other Claremont Colleges in order to maximize our resources.
Membership is open to all Scripps students through a written application and interview. We organize events that is targeted for Scripps students and open to the 5C community. The members and leaders meet weekly/bi-weekly to discuss organizing events and outreach to the Scripps community. There are also meetings with the entrepreneurship groups in the other colleges including Pomona Ventures and Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at CMC.
We have organized various events including guest speakers, mixer events, discussions and workshops. For example, we have organized a panel of student entrepreneurs at the 5Cs. We have also co-organized Startup Weekend as a 5C two day workshop that involves students producing a startup in a weekend, working with serial entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
