The Wond’ry: An Epicenter for Innovation and Entrepreneurship: September 21, 2018

Free for Members, $35 for non-Lab Members.

The Disruption Lab heads to the Wond’ry for a behind the scenes tour of this epicenter of innovation and entrepreneurship within the heart of Nashville, Tenn. Made up of a cluster of state-of-the-art innovation labs for graduate students, faculty, staff and employees of Vanderbilt University, the Wond’ry attracts a mashup of curious thinkers, researchers, cross-functional and interdisciplinary teams.

In this session, David Owens, Professor of the Practice of Management and Innovation at the Owen Graduate School of Management, Vanderbilt University, Chairman of the Advisory Board for the Wond’ry, and an Associate of The Disruption Lab, will present on the vision and how the Wond’ry became a reality at Vanderbilt University. He’ll also illuminate the differences and similarities of how a research institution approaches and supports innovation compared and contrasted with how entrepreneurs and corporate innovators must approach innovation. Robert Grajewski, Evans Family Executive Director of the Wond’ry, will present on current programs and initiatives that serve their mission and offer effective solutions to pressing societal problems, the Wond’ry’s role within the larger innovation ecosystem, and their process for testing new ideas and then, once proven, how teams take them out into the world.
