‚≠źÔłŹ Universities Foster Entrepreneurship and Innovation (Hannah Winston)

Our two-cents on Rudegeair’s article

‚ÄúAt my university, there‚Äôs an ‚Äėinnovation and entrepreneurship‚Äô program which has come a long way since its inception — we now even offer grants to startups on-campus. However, generally speaking, I do not believe universities are effective at teaching subjects that fall outside of traditional academic disciplines, such as entrepreneurship. In my opinion, the greatest learning for entrepreneurs comes from simply ‚Äėdoing‚Äô rather than coursework.‚ÄĚ —¬†Tom W.
