Need advice on your next innovative idea? Want to join an industry-related and tech-enabled community? Chat with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) or join your Ion Mingle Community!

On the Third Monday of the month, come to the Ion’s Academic Flex Space from 5 to 5:30 pm to connect with Ion SMEs in 1:1 or small group sessions. Our SMEs specialize in a range of topics, including Communication & Team Transformation, Storytelling, Marketing & Branding, Pitch Deck Preparation, Product Development, and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. While not every SME will be available every Third Monday, come prepared with your questions to make the most of this event, and feel free to connect with our SMEs using their LinkedIn profiles provided below!

At the same time, check out Ion’s Mingle Lounges. Lounges run from 5 to 6 pm in the classrooms surrounding the Flex Space. These Lounges are a great place to connect with fellow founders, innovators, entrepreneurs, SMEs, researchers, and corporates! Typically, each Lounge will have a featured speaker who shares their story and expertise. Make sure to follow Mingle Leaders’ and Ion’s social media for announcements regarding speakers and the frequency of Mingle Lounges. Mark your calendar and get ready to innovate, collaborate, and network!

Every better way needs a place to begin. Start here.
