Cultivating an Entrepreneurial Culture
As the saying goes, culture eats strategy for breakfast. At an entrepreneurial community college, there is a culture that enables every level of staff to act as an innovator and problem solver. The entrepreneurial method is used when facing challenges of any size. Staff ask "what is my Bird-in-Hand?" and "with whom can I co-create?" to solve problems.
While creating this kind of culture can start with a spark, it is something that consistently needs to be fueled over time, across departments and with a range of staff members. NACCE2015 will focus on providing the tools to ignite and maintain an entrepreneurial culture at all levels and share actionable examples of staff applying the entrepreneurial method to common community college challenges. Because cultivating an entrepreneurial culture is a process, not an activity, we will discuss ways to sustain the momentum of our work, both personally and institutionally. NACCE2015 will also continue to provide cutting-edge programming in teaching entrepreneurship on campus and in the community.
Come to the conference with a problem to solve. Brainstorm with a community of like-minded peers. Leave with an action plan and a community of practice for support.
