SOUTH BEND -

IDEA Week, an annual event that celebrates innovation, entrepreneurs and the incubation of new ideas, kicks off Monday. Last year, in its inaugural run, the event drew 18,000 to the Michiana area.

The event will be held at Notre Dame and other venues throughout South Bend and Elkhart and will be open to the public.

IDEA Week will feature nationally known keynote speakers, musicians, comedians and even a magician

A goal of Idea Week is to introduce entrepreneurs, developers, makers, inventors, designers and investors to each other and to highlight the economic growth and innovation in Notre Dame and the South Bend-Elkhart region.

"Idea Week is not a conference," Bryan Ritchie, Notre Dame vice president and associate provost for innovation said in a news release. "We want to celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship and help people come together to produce what we call 'productive collisions.' Someone you meet at Idea Week might be your next business partner, client or customer."
