AnderTech Kick-Off Night/101 Series
Highlighted with a keynote speaker from a top tech firm, this event allows new members to learn about the club’s mission, programming and available leadership positions. New members have the opportunity to connect with second-year club members as the club celebrates the beginning of a new school year.

Innovate Conference and Multi-School Case Competition
In the 2019-2020 school year, AnderTech will launch a multi-school case competition in conjunction with the Easton Center’s Innovate Conference in January. Anderson students will compete against other top business schools in this company-sponsored event.

AnderTech APIC Competition
Back for its second year, this competition is aimed at giving teams of students hands-on experience building a minimum viable product. Held over the course of one week, students will team up with classmates and computer science students outside of Anderson to design a product, bring it to life, create a go-to-market strategy and present it to a judging panel of senior-level tech mentors. The program also includes several workshops ahead of the competition and optional mentorship provided through the Easton Center.

Technology Career Night
Alumni, recruiters and other representatives from more than 20 technology firms join members of AnderTech for an evening of networking, recruiting advice and career exploration. This is one of AnderTech’s signature events, and it includes opportunities to learn about traditional technology roles, such as product manager or product marketing manager, as well as other roles in or related to the tech industry, such as those in finance, operations, program management and marketing.
