Entrepreneurship and Innovation have become the two most searched for Words on Google. Every country, region, city and university have established entities that promote the growth of Start-Ups that they hope will create new industries and jobs.  In addition, every company in the world has people focused on what they can do next to grow their business.  The IEEE has established a Board Level committee that is promoting Entrepreneurship and the development of resources for its Members that want to create opportunity within their own company or take the risk and create a Start-Up venture.

This Workshop will detail the process for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, resources and how the Internet of Things is the foundation for the biggest growth of Start-Ups that has ever existed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, governments around the world have issued restrictions on travel, gatherings, and meetings in an effort to limit and slow the spread of the virus.
