Senior Executive-in-Residence, assistant dean, and Director of Business and Entrepreneurial Studies Lu Ann Reeb discusses the E3 Entrepreneurship program, a yearlong program that culminates in its pitch competition, where each student showcases their new business idea.
Reeb shares how the program had to pivot online due to COVID-19, some of the business ventures alumni are working on, and more.
I want my students to know how to look for opportunities in the world around them, to pay attention to the problems other people are experiencing and be curious, and active, in trying to fix them. And in my classroom, I want my students to feel as if they are in a safe place to fail. I believe in the power of Plan Bs, in pivoting and transforming. That’s my philosophy.
