Visions into reality: A workshop for aspiring entrepreneurs

entrepreneur imageHow do entrepreneurs turn ideas into marketable concepts and strategies?  What are the steps?

These questions are at the heart of "Communicate to Innovate," a two-hour interactive session on entrepreneurial development that is open to all students interested in understanding more about the innovation process.

Developed by Cole Mora '17 and sponsored by several campus organizations and departments -- Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Center for Writing and Public Discourse, and Student impACT -- the "Communicate to Innovate" event will take place tomorrow, November 21, 1 p.m. - 3 p.m., on the fourth floor balcony of the Kravis Center.

The best kind of learning is experiential learning, and participants will engage in several half-hour interactive exercises as part of a roundtable format to encourage collaborative thought and discussion.  The event is an ideal opportunity for students to hone their ideas as the College looks ahead to the Hult Prize event on campus in December.

The roundtable activities and workshops will be centered on four major themes -- vision, journalism, incubation, and presentation -- that will appeal to anyone interested in start-ups, social entrepreneurship, and writing.  The specific workshop titles include:

  • Writing a Personal Statement
  • Journalism in Entrepreneurship
  • Innovation Incubator
  • Sharing A Vision
Each workshop (and table) will be staffed by members from the sponsoring organizations to assist and guide participants through each exercise.  Don't miss it!  For more event information, see the flyer below.
