About Student Spotlight:

Student Spotlight is a mini-series part of Student Innovation Week hosted by StartUP FIU. Through a series of Pecha Kucha* talks, students from our community get to share their experiences as entrepreneurs and innovators in their field! From social entrepreneurship to the unconventional student path, we will hear from our very own FIU panthers as well as students from our neighboring Miami-based universities.

*Pecha Kucha is a storytelling format where a presenter shows 20 slides for 20 seconds of commentary each.


Who is this event for?

We invite students from all majors, from Business to Computer Engineering or from Biology to the Arts. Students who wish to learn more about different paths and explore how the entrepreneurial mindsets of others have helped pave innovative ways to success.
