Think Like an Entrepreneur
We all have entrepreneurial elements within us. But whether you’re starting up a business, working at a corporation, or addressing issues in other capacities, using these skills in numerous situations can help us overcome challenges and learn from setbacks with an innovator’s eye and a founder’s grit.
Further exploring what was introduced by Activate your entrepreneurial mindset, this webinar will zero in on the specific skills and qualities that embody this innovative way of thinking. In this lively and interactive session, entrepreneurship@UBC practitioners Andrea Lloyd (MA) and Pranav Menon (BASc’19) will examine some of the eight skills of an entrepreneurial mindset, highlight practical techniques to develop these skills, and share how you can put them into practice in your ever-changing workplace, communities, and life.
entrepreneurship@UBC propels UBC innovations out into the world through venture creation, providing UBC students, researchers, faculty members, alumni and staff with the resources, networks, and funding they need to succeed.
