The Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) aims to support and advance student entrepreneurs with innovative ideas or ventures. The Insititute’s reach does not stop at Georgia State’s campus, it is an active participant in Atlanta’s bustling startup scene. ENI furthered this mission by co-sponsoring this year’s Burdell’s School of Entrepreneurship Conference (BSOE).
On October 10, the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) at the J. Mack Robinson College of Business held their bi-annual Influential Speakers Series at Launch GSU. Georgia State University students gave a panther welcome to Sharmeen Hawkins, an Atlanta-based entrepreneur.
With the rise of shows like Shark Tank and Funderdome, the art of pitching has become a major factor in the business world, especially when it comes to entrepreneurship and start-ups. It was only fitting that ENI’s lecture series ENI Live continued last week with a pitch workshop led by Brandy Nagel, a startup enthusiast with a passion to help students create and grow businesses.
Georgia State’s Creative Media Industries Institute and the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute collaborated to provide students with the opportunity to learn more about entrepreneurship and its impact on the creative media industry.
Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute traveled with 15 Georgia State University students to the Advanced Technology Development Center located at Georgia Tech. The students participated in a private tour and overview of the resources the incubator provides to tech-enabled startups.
