October 6, 2018 - Colorado Springs
If you are looking for some engaging, hands-on, project-based options for teaching entrepreneurship, this class should meet your needs. We will be joined by a professor from the Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship at the CU-Denver School of Business, who will help us understand the factors that both promote and inhibit business creation. Additionally, we will have two mentor teachers presenting different approaches – the first involves competitive tasks, each of which incorporates elements of entrepreneurship. The other approach involves having students develop a fully functioning business from beginning to end, with a glimpse into both the entrepreneur’s head and spirit. Join us to pick-and-choose the best ideas for your classroom!
