TECH Event Draws Crowd of Over 50

Paul Bottino, DEAS director of external affairs, said he was not upset by turnout at last week's kick-off event.

"I put most of my energy into developing the content," Bottino said. "We haven't advertised at all."


TECH creators said they were happy that yesterday's event was popular, but have said in the past that they value small group discussion.

"We're taking it slowly. I don't want it to get too big," Venky said.

The program aims to draw people from all disciplines to create a community of innovation.

It provides an opportunity for students to become tech savvy and learn what it takes to develop a new business venture, through panel discussions and lectures from Harvard alumni and others at the tops of their respective fields.

TECH creators also said the program aims to explain scientific innovation in ways everyone can understand.
