This is Waste Not, a podcast engaging start-ups, innovators, entrepreneurs in the RISN Incubator and the Circular Economy thought leaders that support them. We delve into the solutions being transformed from idea to products or services, and what it takes to overcome the challenges of being a circular economy change agent.
In this episode, we travel to Lowell, Massachusetts to attend the Deshpande Symposium. Now 8 years running, the Deshpande Symposium is one of the largest gatherings of academics, policy makers and practitioners to share best methods of integrating entrepreneurship in higher education. RISN’s host institution, Arizona State University, is one of the main sponsors of the event, and it is where we introduce you to one of RISN Incubator’s Advisory Board members and principle investigator on the project for ASU, Ji Mi Choi. Choi is an associate vice president of Arizona State University with the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development and leads its Entrepreneurship and Innovation program.
