Alumni College: The Golden Age of Entrepreneurship

Innovations in technology, access to crowdfunding resources, the continued rise of start-ups, and increased attention to providing young people with the tools they need for success through college coursework and co-curricular opportunities have led to what some are calling “The Golden Age of Entrepreneurship.” This session will explore what Carleton and other institutions of higher education are doing to stay ahead of the curve and provide opportunities that foster an entrepreneurial spirit among our students. Presenters include Nathan Grawe, Chair of Economics and Ada M. Harrison Distinguished Teaching Professor of the Social Sciences at Carleton, Robert Will ’50, Carleton’s Raymond Plank Professor of Incentive Economics, Emeritus, and Eric Carlson ’66, who after an extensive Silicon Valley career served at Santa Clara University as Director of the Global Social Benefit Institute and Dean’s Professor of Entrepreneurship in the Leavey School of Business, specializing in social entrepreneurship.
