Demystifying Entrepreneurship Panel
This multi-lesson activity will teach STEAMers the important characteristics and traits of successful entrepreneurs. STEAMers will have opportunities to interact with entrepreneurs from a variety of different industries in a panel-style discussion.
Women business owners and corporate executives hold individual table-top sessions on their company’s area of interest, qualifications to apply for jobs in their field, and other questions from students on a small group basis. Students rotate every 15 minutes among the tables asking questions.
