Next Wednesday, a USC alumni, Michael Bergmann, will be coming to campus for a special meeting with students. Mr. Bergmann worked for Nike for the past 30 years, but recently retired and is working on two startups – IncubatorU and Red Truck.

His goal is to use this session as a catalyst to create new ideas, to engage with the attending students to follow through on some of the ideas that emerge, and to leverage the creativity in the room to implement your ideas into practice, through IncubatorU and Red Truck. The session will expose you to an interdisciplinary approach to business, and give you a great set of tools to utilize in the real world, in whatever field you plan to work in. Additionally, Mr. Bergmann will choose several students to work with him as he develops these business models further.
