It sounded fairly interesting to me, so I decided to apply, despite having no interest in innovation and entrepreneurship at the time. Little did I know, this decision would later become the best investment I’ve ever made for myself, as well as the start of a life-changing journey.
My name is Mike Huang, and I am a 21-year-old, fourth-year undergraduate student at the Kelley School of Business on IUPUI's campus, majoring in management, human resource management and international studies.
I am passionate about diversity and inclusion, front-end development (UI/UX development) and talent acquisition. I am a member of Team NitroDunk, the winning team at the first IUPUI Sports Innovation Institute – 24 Hour Innovation Challenge pitch competition, and 2nd place team at the Jagstart Student Pitch Competition.
After completing six weeks of design thinking training and conducting in-depth analyses of our campus ecosystems, I was officially named an University Innovation Fellow in February 2017, along with two other bright students from the fields of science and art & design. Representing IUPUI, we attended the national meetup from March 9th to 13th at the innovation capital of the world – Silicon Valley.
