HyperX Madison is a multi-disciplinary, student-run organization designed to be UW-Madison’s Student Innovation Hub for hands-on experience with real-world problems and opportunities for entrepreneurs to potentially partner with corporations to work on industry use cases.
Our focus in 2018 is on applied learning and problem solving in disruptive tech (think Block Chain, AI, AR/VR and IoT) in transportation, Connected Home-Healthcare, and other disruptive spaces. We welcome all disciplines and encourage business, design, humanities and other majors as well as those in STEM fields to participate.
Our goal is to help UW-Madison students gain access to “neutral” territory for exploring entrepreneurial ideas, connect with resources and mentors, participate in industry projects for hands-on learning, and take part in opportunities and events for faster learning in rapidly changing technology spaces.
Making valuable industry connections by interacting with startup gurus and industry executives, growing professional skills, building your resume, and supplementing campus learning are all things students can get out of engaging with HyperX.
HyperX is sponsored by Hyper Innovation. Hyper Innovation (HI) is a private innovation center that focuses on collaboration and hands-on learning for mid- to large-sized corporations in rapidly changing spaces. HI provides students opportunities for being matched to industry projects, frameworks and mentors for developing ideas, an open sandbox space for exploring new ideas.
If you represent a company that would like to provide a challenge or project for students to work on, you can request an invitation to participate for your company. Our focus is on selecting the highest level talent and relevant outcomes based on your parameters and goals.
