Inve[n|s]t UB

Inve[n|s]t UB is a faculty, staff and student club for innovators looking to work on exciting, real-world challenges. We help create and encourage cross functional teams that are working on applying computing technologies to domains like finance, medicine, and community service.

We aim to create a culture where you can meet partners to work with, brainstorm and connect with students and mentors who can help turn interesting ideas into concrete solutions.
