Opening Apertures;
Changing Trajectories


Showing WMU students the technologies of the future

WMU - Westbound.

We bring a team of selected students to the West Coast (SoCal, San Francisco and Seattle) every semester to learn about deep tech culture. We seek the development of technology which will inevitably shape the future. Exploring household names like Google to deep tech startups like Groq, our goal is to fuel their excitement for the future.

Our Students

Our students are the reason why TechNext was found. Read about their experiences while working with the team.

Companies Visited

Our efforts are as strong as our alumni connections – we have been invited to learn from many of the world’s leading companies in changing how we think. 

Our Journey

We created a unique culture in WMU acting as an intersection between the Midwest and West Coast.
