Public lecture explores student mentoring

15 September

veski's entrepreneur in residence Dr Jonathan Rosen will present a public lecture at Bio21 Institute on the role of student mentoring in accelerating new venture formation.

Boston University College of Engineering has been actively involved in developing new innovation and entrepreneurial studies for its undergraduate students.

Multi-disciplinary teams of undergraduate engineering students are participating in experiential design projects that combine technical engineering elements with strategic, sustaining and socially relevant problem solving techniques.

To more fully support these advanced teams, traditional faculty coaching is being supplemented by a new student mentoring program. This program provides the organisational framework that allows alumni, community leaders, and corporate executive volunteers with specific and relevant content expertise to meet regularly with each student team.

This presentation will describe the elements of the program, give specific examples and discuss the implications of this approach as a prototype for emerging innovation programs.

This event is part of the veski entrepreneur in residence program.
