Get off to a fast start this year by persuasively and strategically making the case at your college for a renewed or expanded focus on entrepreneurship!

We've asked two of our most successful members and advisors to provide insider tips on how you can influence decision makers at your school and get rock-solid commitment to entrepreneurship.

In this high-content session you'll learn:
  • Why having your president on board is crucial: and how to get his or her attention, now.
  • How others have made the case at their institutions and inspired fast commitment.
  • How to get and keep entrepreneurship top-of-mind at your college.
  • The most practical ways to make the case and get started at the same time.
  • How to successfully involve your boards, trustees, and foundations.
  • What we've learned to date from our successful Presidents for Entrepreneurship Forum and how this can and will impact your efforts locally.
