For many, entrepreneurship is synonymous with starting a company, but over the last few years we have worked hard to broaden this narrow understanding – starting a company is just one manifestation of entrepreneurship. The term has expanded to cover many other ways that an entrepreneurial mindset can be applied to different situations such as social entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, creative problem solving, opportunity recognition, technology management, innovation and career development, etc. In this session we will focus on the aspects of an entrepreneurial mindset and how to use that mindset for innovation with a focus on business modeling.
