Entrepreneurship is an Extreme Sport

Abstract

Proposal content includes: New and emerging programs, Improving student outcomes, Programs for graduate students, Product development and marketing, Programs in primarily undergraduate institutions, For student conference attendees, Creativity, The art and spirit of innovation
How do you teach creativity and entrepreneurship? It certainly isn’t by lining students up in rows and columns and giving lectures about innovation. Creativity is taught by giving students the opportunity to stretch their imaginations by asking them to solve problems without a one right answer – problems that seem impossible until you turn them upside down and inside out. In this session I will show examples of projects that were given to students and the amazing and unexpected results they deliver. The students surprise me and themselves every time, leaving them knowing that they can creatively turn any problem into an opportunity.
