Kickoff meeting for startup competitions

On Thursday, September 4, at 5:30PM, the Skandalaris Center’s new Managing Director, Emre Toker, will kick off this year’s Skandalaris programming, including the Olin Cup and YouthBridge Social Enterprise and Innovation Competitions. Registration is at 5PM with the program start at 5:30 in Whitaker Hall auditorium, followed by a reception in the Whitaker Atrium.

Tokar arrived in St. Louis and at Washington University earlier this month from the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management, where he was a Mentor in Residence. He is excited by what’s been happening on campus and in the community in the area of innovation and entrepreneurship.  An entrepreneur himself, he founded two biomedical technology companies in Tucson, MedOptics and Bioptics Corporations, and co-founded one in Santa Clara, California, Radicon Imaging Corporation. Each company was acquired by larger firms within seven years of founding.  Emre’s areas of interest include early-stage ventures, international angel investment syndication, and biomedical technologies.

Jessica Stanko just transferred to the Skandalaris Center from the Career Center,  as Campus and Student Services Coordinator. If you have any questions about the Skandalaris Center or would like to know more about programs and services, please feel free to contact Jessica at
