SDSU EMC WebCompass Team Launches New Non-Profit Website
A team of San Diego State University students just launched a newly redesigned website for the Poway Center for Performing Arts. The project involved students from three colleges, business, graphic design and computer science. Starting with a strategy of creating more awareness and driving revenue, as well as an improved user interface, the team re-designed the website in about 14 weeks complete with edited content and search engine optimization improvements.

EMC Tournament of Driving Forces Golf Tournament
- November 3, 2011, Save the Date!
Our annual golf tournament benefits students who are trying to build companies as we use the monies raised to help improve their business idea, allocate mentors, assist in the writing of the plan and then supporting the teams as they attend national business plan competitions at some of the top universities in the country. Brad Chisum, SDSU MBA, went through this experience in 2007 and his team won several competitions and earned over $200,000 that they used to create the final prototype. Today he has a rapidly growing company called Lumedyne Technologies and you can learn more about his company at lumedynetechnologies. Next generation entrepreneurs is what should get all of us excited.
So, this year we are at Encinitas Ranch on November 3rd...save the date and join us!
