Hey ANTrepreneurs!


As you’re enjoying your summer, we would like to update you on our activities. It's an exciting time for the center. We're moving at the end of this month to our new location next to Summer Session's office, the Banning House! It's currently undergoing renovations, but we'll be sharing updates as the month goes on. Check out our social media to see the move, as well as our other endeavors at SPOP and special events. 


ANTrepreneurs are at work too: a startup revolving around a glove, packed with the power of a computer, has recently pivoted. We sat down with the founder of this company to hear his experiences about his changing business.


Also, did you know that LinkedIn has finally allowed video uploads? It’s a great opportunity for marketers and to expand your network. Read more below!


Sincerely,

UCI ANTrepreneur Center

Thanks Tech Trek!

Last month we had the opportunity to host Tech Trek held at UC Irvine. This science and math camp is designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in girls in middle school. We hope that our button making station and workshops helped the students have a good time!

Founder of AirNotes and creator of the glove, Olaoluwa Adesanya, shared his experiences of how to turn ideas into reality and advice about when to redefine a business.  Read more.

LinkedIn Begins Offering Video. Here Are the Top 2 Reasons Marketers Are Excited


Just last July, the professional social network LinkedIn updated its mobile app to finally allow user uploaded videos.
