Aspiring Entrepreneurs

November 8 @ 12:00 - 13:00 CST

Join us and explore entrepreneurship and what it can mean for you!

In this interactive session, we will explore entrepreneurship and identify your entrepreneurial inspirations through stories and activities. We will help you answer questions like, “how can entrepreneurship support my business dreams?” and “what can entrepreneurship mean for me?”

At the end of this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify your entrepreneurial inspirations and aspirations.
  • Explore different journeys entrepreneurs experience.
  • Formulate next steps to pursue curiosity and learning related to entrepreneurship.

As a participant in this session, you will get first access to the Starting Line Entrepreneur Toolkit in partnership with Airbnb. Activities included in this toolkit are designed to take you through exploratory steps to help crystalize any business ideas you have and put them into action.
