This spring, Duke I&E launched its I&E Academy – an endeavor that offers learning opportunities for anyone interested in growing their innovation and entrepreneurship skill sets, and building a solid knowledge base that will help them take advantage of future opportunities.
With 13 sessions, this inaugural Academy served more than 300 participants, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, as well as faculty, staff, and community members. Individual sessions touched on a myriad of topics including design thinking and developing innovative solutions, new venture funding, protecting intellectual property, writing business plans, and social entrepreneurship and innovation.
According to Kevin Hoch, I&E’s managing director of education, the Academy’s debut was a resounding success.
“The I&E Academy is off to a great start,” he said. “Our sessions covered a diverse set of topics and drew a broad audience. We are happy to announce that the Academy will start again this fall with a new set of session topics.”
