Winter 2020

Greetings Alumni and Friends of the Weinert Center,

One of the topics we often discuss is how having an entrepreneurial mindset is really a life skill in today’s economy. The ability to handle uncertainty, recognize problems, develop creative solutions and run experiments to de-risk your idea are all skills that are just as important if you are working for a large firm or starting your own. Building these skills in our students is done both in the classroom and across a range of other activities.

This newsletter has some great stories on some of these activities. It also profiles our newest advisory board member and a recent alumna who are both wonderful examples of using entrepreneurial skills in both big and small organizations. 

Enjoy!

Dan
