You may have recently seen coworkers or fellow students carrying a new bag around campus. Was is stylish? Was it highly functional? It was most likely Topo Designs.

A recurring series hosted by the Deming Center for Entrepreneruship in Leeds, each Startups & Sandwiches event provides up to 30 students with a unique opportunity to meet and network with executives and founders alike, and participate in a presentation, challenge, or discussion facilitated by our guest. Each guest brings their own flavor to their session, and no two lunches are alike. Glimpse into the startup ecosystem—and try the Deming Team’s favorite local sandwich shops.

Seats are limited and open to any student on campus, so be sure to RSVP quickly and let us know if you can’t attend so we can open your seat to someone else.
