Everyone has great ideas. We all think of “amazing, mind bending, earth shattering” ideas every day. Yet it takes a different mindset to move from idea to implementation. The design of this course is to provide you with the basic tools and perspective to take your great ideas to the next level. This course will prepare Spartans that are poised and ready to pursue their dreams and change the world.
Enrollment will allow students to have exclusive access to the Hive as well as onsite mentoring from faculty and external professionals to help bring their ideas to fruition.
The course is scheduled to meet on Fridays from 11:30 a.m. – 12:20 p.m. but will also involve activities / events / speakers outside of scheduled class times that will be arranged during the semester.
Topics covered will include the following:
Ultimately this space / course is the launching pad for incredible mind bending ideas and will set the path for great student created ventures.
