About IEEE N3XT® Events

IEEE Entrepreneurship works in partnership with IEEE Entities to host IEEE N3XT® events.

The name IEEE N3XT® embodies the spirit of future technological development by using the root of the word “next,” and the numeral “3” to represent the three event pillars of ideas, innovation, and inspiration.

These events are valuable to you, if you are:

  • an aspiring, early-stage, or successful technical entrepreneur

  • transforming your education ideas into inventions or applications

  • interested in learning from conversations with founder peers and the larger technical startup community

  • inspired by visionaries sharing their stories

  • work for ecosystem communities including incubators, accelerators, investors and service providers.

By bringing together the technical entrepreneur community, these events will foster collaboration and innovation, as well as provide encouragement and skills building to entrepreneurs looking to make their mark.

Host​ ​an​ ​IEEE​ ​N3XT​® ​Affiliate​ ​Event

IEEE owns the trademark for IEEE N3XT® and licenses the brand for use on an approval basis. Currently, the IEEE N3XT® brand is available in an add-on format, meaning that an IEEE N3XT® Affiliate Event may be added to a larger event or conference, as a session, meetup, workshop, or other iteration that is differentiated from the standalone flagship event.
IEEE N3XT® Affiliate Events are focused on bringing skills and inspiration to the next generation of
entrepreneurs. These events should embrace new style methodologies and produced event formats that would appeal to these audiences.
