Entrepreneurial Design is the application of a mindset allowing students to be forward-thinking problem finders and solvers. Today’s entrepreneurs have other careers and job titles, but have taken their idea and made it a reality. As we prepare students for careers that do not exist, we need them to persevere, be creative, innovative, great communicators, and multi-talented. Through partnerships in Raleigh and beyond, students will engage in learning with the start-up community and understand innovative ways to help the ever changing world around them. A CONNtreprenuer uses the content they learn to identify a problem in their school, community, or around the world, and creates a solution involving a good or service, while learning from business and organizational partnerships. Students will hear from speakers, video conference with those experts further away, and participate in content based excursions to see how the content they learn is applied in the real world.
