Global Entrepreneurship Week

Posted By Bogusia Wojciechowska, Monday, October 04, 2010
Global Entrepreneurship Week is only around the corner, and we are planning a full schedule of events focusing on corporate social responsibility.  


In addition to these events, we will also be again hosting the Young Entrepreneurs Alliance students from Madison Park High School, Boston, and Assabet Valley High School, Assabet.  These young entrepreneurs participate in a student-run graphic design business on their campuses, and will be coming to Bunker Hill Community College to pitch their businesses to Bunker Hill students, faculty, staff and potential clients.


We are also connecting with local high schools to distribute a survey about entrepreneurship. We believe we can get 200 responses which will influence how we continue to strengthen our relationship with area high schools and involve high school students in the student-run business at BHCC.  The content of the survey was strongly influenced by the feedback we received from students participating in our summer Career Days program, and we hope to discuss  topics such as the high schoolers interpretation of the word 'entrepreneurship' during our presentation at the NACCE conference.
 
If you would like to give us feedback on the survey, please feel free to do so.  
Here is the survey:
