Entrepreneurship, Mentorship and the Role of Higher Ed (Free Virtual Event)

Monday, April 20, 2020, 8:00 – 10:00 PM UTC

Meet 4 higher ed institutions who support entrepreneurs through undergrad education, incubators, creative support and programming. See how each university puts their own spin on entrepreneurship education and nurturing a startup ecosystem. Univ. of Baltimore, Towson U., MICA and the Univ. System of Maryland will be our panelists for this perhaps-surprising look at their thriving startup cultures.

About this event

Universities around the country are recognizing the importance of providing entrepreneurship-related education for their undergrads. Students that engage in entrepreneurship during their time in college emerge with the soft skills and drive necessary to lead companies and bring growth wherever they land. Maryland is fortunate to have a number of great higher education institutions that recognize this importance. We'll meet representatives from 4 of them --  University of Baltimore, Towson University, MICA, and the University System of Maryland  -- to hear what they're doing to support the next generation of startup and entrepreneurial leaders.
