BUILDING COMMUNITIES FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION
FALL 2021 Newsletter
A NOTE FROM NATHALIE
As another semester is wrapped up, we are feeling ever grateful and ever true to all the accomplishments that our students, instructors and staff have accomplished. As students, instructors and guest speakers have returned to campus, so has a feeling of normalcy. As we have had the opportunity to connect with students and instructors, many of them have been thankful for the visitors to return to campus. As we all patiently wait for the pandemic to come to a close, everyone has learned to move forward. Everyone has continued moving forward with amazing accomplishments, creating a stronger network, and navigating a new normal.
We have spoken with alumni that have had successful startups, shifted their mindset to maintain their companies and have even come back to share their experiences with our students in our courses. For this, we are ever grateful. It’s the connections that our students make with their instructors and their networks that make these experiences all worth it. In our networks, is where we can grow and even learn to fail forward. Failing forward is often where we find the most growth. That moment where we can be honest with ourselves and transparent with those around us, this is where we build communities and grow.
