NJIT Alum Leads Team at Innovation Summit

Yang Fan, NJIT class of 2011, recently led a team based in Philadelphia at the New Venture Competition of the Carnegie Mellon University US-China Entrepreneurship and Innovation Summit held on April 28th - April 29th in Pittsburgh.  The team was a finalist out of more than 50 candidates. Their project is called OriginSociety.com, a Website for those emerging entrepreneurs based in America and China to get started, connected and inspired by each other. It brings entrepreneurs, designers, tech people, investors and other parties together by the "speed match" model, in which people can quickly find individuals and resources they need for their start-up or project within their own city.
