WHAT IS THE COMMONS?
The Commons helps students of any school, any age and any career interest understand how to creatively solve big problems. We find the most motivated and curious minds from across the region, craft engaging innovation experiences and give them direct access to mentoring professionals and exciting local work opportunities.
The Commons is coming to Beloit to partner with the local high schools, colleges, businesses and civic community to build upon the strong assets present in the region. And we want you to experience it! Registration below.

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING?
With all of our programming, we work on big, open-ended innovation challenges facing local companies. We often explore new technology, utilize human-centered design thinking and practice strategic disruption. We do all of this in cross-functional teams of other talented minds from across the region and have a lot of fun doing it. It’s fast-paced, engaging and we make sure students are developing valuable professional skills.
This will be no different *
* Except we’ll have some drinks and a discussion about experiential learning at the end
AND WHY ARE WE DOING IT?
1) We like getting people trying new things. 2) Getting a taste for the experience will help you understand the value it will provide local Beloit students. 3) It’s more fun this way.
