Entrepreneurship is a crucial path to increasing innovation, jobs, personal responsibility, the economic vitality of regions, and individual prosperity. Our work is focused on discovering evidence-based interventions that increase students’ interest and success in entrepreneurship.
Why focus on student entrepreneurship?
Companies formed by university students or recent former students include industry giants FedEx, Microsoft, and Google. Further, many individuals who acquire a taste for entrepreneurship by starting companies while in school use this experience to launch careers in entrepreneurship. While programs to support student entrepreneurs have proliferated, data systems designed to track and improve these programs are needed.
