  HOBOKEN, NJ: In less than one  week  some of the region’s savviest minds will come together to spark the innovation flame. The NJ Spark Summit, taking place on September 13th at Steven’s Institute of Technology in Hoboken, will connect entrepreneurs and creators to a viable base of resources needed to launch a sustainable, successful idea. The lineup of panels will provide potent insight into what it takes to build and maintain a startup.

 Through the course of the day, prospective or interested entrepreneurs will learn from attorneys, venture capitalists, seasoned entrepreneurs & other professionals on what exactly goes into taking an idea to launch and beyond. The goal is to provide “real world” advice from those who have experience.
