HyperX Madison is a multi-disciplinary, student-run organization designed to be UW-Madison’s Student Emerging Tech Hub for hands-on experience with real-world problems and opportunities for students to potentially partner with corporations to work on industry use cases.
Our focus is on applied learning and problem solving in disruptive tech (think Block Chain, AI, AR/VR and IoT) in transportation and mobility, Digital Health, Sports Technology, and other disruptive spaces. We welcome all disciplines and encourage business, design, humanities, arts 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 intriguing applications for emerging technologies, 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.
Students who participate in HyperX’s program have the opportunity to make valuable industry connections by interacting with startup gurus and industry executives, grow their professional skills, build their resume, and supplement campus learning.
HyperX is located within the Emerging Tech Hub at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery (WID). WID is the central hub for innovation at the University of Wisconsin. The Emerging Tech Hub at WID is a space for interdisciplinary experimentation and exploration of new technologies engaging resources from across campus. The Hub is uniquely positioned to offer a “free zone” for students to explore emerging technology and partner with companies to bring deep technical capabilities and engagement with multi-disciplinary faculty and students.
The Hub is positioned to be the conduit between corporate, startup, and university innovation. Designed with the WID’s mission in mind, “discover and inspire through interdisciplinary research conducted in a dynamic, collaborative community.” This space will provide a point of connection between interdisciplinary teams of researchers and students, thereby enabling the integration of scientists, content creators, designers, artists, and engineers around novel technologies.
HyperX is sponsored by Hyper Innovation, a corporate innovation agency that brings strategic insights and rapid test-and-learn frameworks for harnessing disruption.
