Below is a public service announcement I wrote for Penn State’s College of IST. Their target audience were students who would be interested in IST’s Start-up Week. 


If you’re a student who’s interested in the possibilities that exist in innovation and entrepreneurship, IST Start-up Week is for you! Describing it as ‘Silicon Valley meets Happy Valley,’ The College of Information Science and Technology Start-up Week is connecting students with successful alumni and pioneers in the industry, while also providing a plethora of highly successful speakers and scholarship opportunities. In the past two years, this event has hosted speakers from high-profile companies such as Reddit, CareerBliss, Sincerely and Weebly, allowing them to share their stories of determination and inspiration with those in attendance. Starting on April 13th, the college will be hosting its annual Start-up Week activities in the Information Sciences and Technology building at University Park campus.
