ThINk Cafe is a think tank for innovative minds collaborating on entrepreneurial ideas and organizational challenges. Our concept is "think outside the box- with help from your community"
Want to see an idea reach it's potential? Need a hand with a resolution? Our program includes interactive networking, problem solving and idea sharing. Each week we invite 2 presenters from a special subject area (i.e. local goverment, education, business or non/not-for-profit) to deliver a 10 minute pitch which includes an industry specific problem or idea. Presenters decribe an opportunity or suggestion and receive 15 minutes of scrimmage style feedback from an audience of community peers and IMSA students, faculty and staff. Together we can solve the Global Grand Challenges one cafe at a time.
ThINk Cafe is a one-of-a-kind innovative first for the state of Illinios at the states ONLY public high-school collaboration hub - The Steve and Jaime Chen Center for Innovation and Inquiry (IN2) at Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. IN2 invites the community into IMSA to work together to advance the human condition through innovation and entrepreneurship programming.
