The annual IDEA Conference is a one-day event for Boston-area students to explore innovation of every kind. Whether it’s through technology, social impact, or arts and culture, we empower all students to embrace their passions and use them to create meaningful impact.
From start to finish, attendees will be inspired by world-class innovators, engage with strategies and useful tools for developing new ideas, and connect with resources and people from across Boston University and beyond.
This year, we're thrilled to welcome keynote speaker and "idea acupuncturist" Anjali Kumar (BU LAW), published author and former General Counsel at Warby Parker and Acumen, and former Senior Counsel for Google. Anjali recently co-founded, The Justice Dept; a women-led development and strategy firm, focusing on legal work for female entrepreneurs, executives, talent, and brands in technology, consumer product, entertainment, and fashion.
The IDEA Conference is organized and hosted by Boston University's Innovate@BU initiative and is generously sponsored by Lou Volpe, Questrom’78, Managing Partner, Kodiak Venture Partners.
