The Original University Start-up: Collaboration

Are all professors entrepreneurs? Entrepreneurism isn’t always about making money, starting a venture or owning a business. It is a way of life, a constant pursuit of innovation and creativity.

Join this talk on professorship as an adventurous profession and an activity with immediate impact on actual communities.
