Fringe Event: Building Future Entrepreneurs: The ET&A Mindset

In this 1-day practical hands-on workshop, we will address the "3 Mindsets" of successful entrepreneurs that form the core principles of Babson College 's Entrepreneurial Thought & Action methodology:

The Creative Mindset Entrepreneurs use a creative mindset to:

  • Generate new ideas when others do not see anything novel
  • Help others to collaborate to produce something new

The Opportunity Mindset Entrepreneurs use an opportunity mindset to:

  • Identify something of value to others
  • Evaluate whether an idea is valuable enough to pursue as a business opportunity

The Promoter Mindset Entrepreneurs use a promotor mindset to:

  • Convince others to commit resources or to support your initiative
  • Tell a compelling story that generates a call-to-action for your cause

Participants will apply these mindsets to prepare a simple pitch to present to an audience about a personal project or initiative that can become an entrepreneurial opportunity.
