Happy Monday, people. There’s a great week in entrepreneurship ahead of you — mostly its the NVC Kick-Off, but that’s basically a week worth of action in one sitting. And Wednesday is National Young Entrepreneurs Day! Once a year, kids across America experience what its like to be an entrepreneur by going door to door for funding to get their ventures off the ground. Most kids have the same idea — get the most funding, and then eat the funding — but the spirit is there, so support these go-getters when your doorbell rings.
Young Entrepreneurs Day, 2011. The kid with the wheels did a resources and capabilities analysis to give himself an edge against his competition. He also conned the kid back left into wearing some girly wings. Between that and the car, the smug look on his face was inevitable.
This Week in Entrepreneurship …
The New Venture Challenge Challenge Kick-Off & the NLab Launch Party
The NVC is a pride and joy of the University of Colorado, and this party kicks off a year-long process of events to take a person from fledgling idea to real business. Come enjoy the party, learn about the process, and see if some hair-brained scheme might fit into it. The Deming Center’s NLab will be unveiling tonight as well, so come here from the horse’s mouth what its all about.
When: Monday, October 29 | 5:15 pm
Where: Wittemyer Courtroom | Wolf Law | CU Boulder Campus
