We are excited to invite you to the DKU Innovation Incubator (Dii) Fair!

Dii is the flagship program of DKU Innovation and Entrepreneurship. It serves as an engine for cultivating and supporting startup ideas from across DKU campus. We aim to leverage the young change-makers who strive for bringing positive impacts to the world with their unique innovation products, services, and beyond.

Dii was launched in August 2019 with the goal of building a comprehensive platform for students to practice innovation and entrepreneurship. Each year, Dii recruits startup proposals from students and provides various opportunities, resources, and learning experiences so that these entrepreneurial ideas can be turned into reality.

The Dii Fair will:

  • Walk you through the basics of the incubator
  • Help you find your future teammates
  • Launch an application for the 2020 fall Dii batch

This event is open to all DKU students (on and off campus) and visiting students. Dinner will be provided.
