The 707 Hub is a radically student-centered, boldly anti-disciplinary innovation space that is a catalyst for any student looking to act on an Idea. It is where students, ideas and spaces -

Connect, Collide and Collaborate.

 

Welcome from the Director

Director of Innovation @ the 707 Hub

The 707 Hub at Marquette University supports student founders, innovators, creators and entrepreneurs with mentoring resources, funding opportunities,  creative outlets, makerspace trainings and various experiential learning endeavours. The Hub is for students, by students. A place where any student from any background can connect, collide and collaborate; because at the Hub, entrepreneurialism is a mindset. 

Don't let my profile picture fool you, it's from my brother's wedding - you'll never see me in a tie.

Below you will find a number of our Signature Programs and Experiential Learning opportunities. You can also listen to what I had to say about the Hub on the Small Business Edge Podcast.

 

If you have any questions, thoughts or concerns - please email me.

Brewed Ideas Challenge

In partnership with Brady Corporation

The Brewed Ideas Challenge is only possible through the 707 Hub's longstanding partnership with Brady Corporation.  The Challenge is not only the largest event (actually series of events) at the 707 Hub it is also the oldest, celebrating it's 10 year anniversary in 2024. Finalists work through a series of bootcamps to develop their business idea so that they are able to pitch for seed money (think Shark Tank, but with out the equity at stake)!

Methods in Ignatian Innovation

Part of Marquette's Core Curriculum

New in Fall 2024, Methods in Ignatian Innovation is not a lecture based note-taking class. It is an active class; a 'doing' class -  it is experiential learning. Though a series of workshops, guest speakers and hands-on activities, students will develop a set of skills and a mindset to help them achieve the change the want to see in the world.
