August 14 - Immigration and Entrepreneurship

America is world-renowned for its entrepreneurial business spirit, and this spirit is fueled in large part by immigrants. Immigrants are more likely to be self-employed than the native-born population. What does it take to leave your home country to start a new venture in the U.S.? What are the implications of immigration reform for entrepreneurs? What would these proposed changes mean on the ability to hire the best qualified individuals? How will it affect the future of business in our country?

Moderated by Jonathan Aberman, Managing Director of Amplifier Ventures, @jaberman

Featuring Panelists:

Lisa Atkins, Director of Immigration Policy at US Chamber of Commerce

Neeta Bidwai, Senior Advisor for U.S. Senator Mark Warner

Steven Chen, Executive Chairman of Power Fingerprinting, Inc. 


August 21 - Wearable Computing

Phones have made mobile computing a reality, but going forward computing will be embedded in our clothing and accessories. These wearable devices will not only monitor and measure the world around us, but will measure the wearer and their behavior. From Nike+ and FitBit to Google Glass and Pebble, this session will delve into the emerging world of wearable computing. BTW, have you seen FitBark?

Moderated by Adam Zuckerman, Fosterly, @Fosterly

Jay Kim, Director of Research and Development with APX Labs, @APXLabs

Brian Russell, CEO of Zephyr Technology Corporation, @ZephyrAnywhere

Startup Mason

The mission of Startup Mason is to provide useful tools, frameworks, and networks supporting those interested in building value creating organizations. We use clear processes to build effective entrepreneurs and organizations.

StartUp Mason is an entrepreneurship learning group dedicated to building entrepreneurs in the GMU community. Group members undertake entrepreneurial initiatives while participating in peer-to-peer feedback sessions, multiple mentor meetings, and completing an entrepreneurship and innovation curriculum based on lean startup, customer development, business model canvas, and other open-source entrepreneurial tools.

We utilize meetings, special events (such as Hackathons, off-sites, etc) and tools to help individuals explore and experiment with entrepreneurship or launch their own ventures.

This group is for members of the George Mason University start-up community. This includes students, faculty, alumni, administrators, neighbors, and others interested in discovering sustainable business models and creating value.

Startup Mason is a program hosted by Mason's College of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Management, and School of Public Policy.
