  • engineering-driven startup community;
  • Ecosystem communities including incubators, accelerators, investors and service providers.

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.
