Rensselaer has a very rich culture of invention. We are supporting people on campus who want to change the world through science and technology and the only way they can really do that is by commercial- izing. GINA OCONNOR INVENTION INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP One of the many vehicles by which Lally teaches agile thinking is Invention Innovation and Entrepreneurship a cutting-edge course in new product development. Here students generate an idea for a new product or service and follow the development and planning process from conception to commercialization. Professor Gina OConnor is a leading expert on innovation. Among her influential books are Radical Innovation How Mature Firms Can Outsmart Upstarts Harvard Business Press and Grabbing Lightning Building a Capability for Breakthrough Innovation Jossey- Bass.

Seizing Opportunities KYLE BRODY 14 While at Lally Kyle Brody 14 a dual major in Business and Management and Economics immersed himself in a wide range of activities. After serving as president of the Entrepreneurship Club he then started a campus chapter of Future Business Leaders of America which promotes professional development. He interned at JP Morgan Chase and attended a National Leadership Conference organized by Deloitte with whom he is now working full-time as an analyst in their Digital Marketing and Content practice. At Rensselaer Brody was also involved with a startup called PayWithMe which facilitates peer-to- peer financial transactions through the use of promissory notes and a social credit score. This venture the only one generated by a student group was the big winner at the Tech Valley Startup Weekend in Spring 2012and Brody and his associates walked away with 15000 in prize money. With so many resources on campus such as the Severino Center you get so many different perspectives says Brody and for me that translates into agility.
