On Saturday, March 29, 2014, a team from the IBM Innovation Center in Silicon Valley attended the 2014 Harker Research Symposium to introduce IBM programs and technologies of interest to the tech-savy students.
The Harker School is a private, co-educational, non-profit college preparatory school in San Jose, California, United States. Founded in 1893, with its own incubator and students who already have their own startup companies. The Research Symposium drew a large croud of students to the IBM booth.
Of the several hundred students who visited the booth and talked to the IBM team, the vast majority were interested in 1) IBM Watson, 2) the IBM Global Entrepreneur program.and 3) Internships at IBM.
Several students had already founded their own companies and were clearly on the path of becoming he future movers and shakers of Silicon Valley.
