Educational Pathways for Founders

As founders, we all have varying pathways to entrepreneurship. Some launched their businesses right out of college while others opted out of a formal education. Today's academic landscape offers many education options for founders from technical classes, entrepreneurial certificates, and business degrees. Join this session as we discuss this shift in education and the opportunities available to our community.
