Engage with peers to generate a set of actionable ideas that can be addressed by startups or teams of students, amplify and vet ideas, determine tangible outcomes and learn about ways your team members can engage to co-learn while working on real business problems you identify. These can be shared challenges or company-specific. Learn more at
