We'll help you bring your ideas to life!

The Deason Innovation Gym wants to help SMU's up and coming entrepreneurs! If you have an idea for something, but maybe aren't too sure how to get it off the ground, contact Alyssa Phillips (, and the DIG will draw on its network of students from various disciplines, including its student lab techs, to help you brainstorm and even prototype during "Innovation Hours"!

Join us for our first session on Tuesday, February 19th from 3-6pm with Allison Catalani, who has a product idea that could bring personalization to the barre class experience. Want to help her out while also networking, utilizing your unique skills, and learning new ones? Send an email to Alyssa Phillips if you're interested in this Innovation Hours session! *Food will be provided*

How do you obtain a copyright, trademark, or patent for your idea? What does it protect? How long does it last?

Join us at 12pm October 10th at Huitt-Zollars (Rm 115 in Embrey) as we dive into the topic of intellectual property and how it all works! Have a great idea or perhaps just curious about IP? Our distinguished speakers will share their incredible experiences and insights!
