Veda Gerasimek

Colorado Mesa University
Chief Inno-Veda Officer
Grand Junction, CO
My dream is to legally change my name to "Inno-Veda," open a world class comedy club, and become a college entrepreneurship professor. Until then, I'm a Marketing/Entrepreneurship student at Colorado Mesa University where I founded the Maverick I.D.E.A. Society (aka the "Elon Musk" of CMU clubs) to help students find their collaborators, co-founders, and comrades in Innovation, Design, Entrepreneurship, & Action. As a student representative on the Colorado Universities Innovation Council (CUIC), I have set out to "crack the innovation center code" to get more students building, creating, and innovating across all departments and disciplines. My WSSW session is the culmination of my research/development at the Maverick Innovation Center at CMU. I'm an "entrepreNERD" through and through, so I'm excited to connect with my "people" here at WSSW.
