Students need to first establish a strong conceptual foundation in entrepreneurship before all else. We instill upon our students that it is essential to look at impact, instead of just money, as the prize in entrepreneurship.
Students need to apply what they've learned towards existing initiatives, using what they've learned. Further, students should give back to the communities that raised them and pay it forward.
Students should try to start something of their own to solve a societal issue they are passionate about solving after they've gained experience working with existing initiatives.
