  STEM Students Develop Entrepreneurial Ideas

Sixteen students with City College and TU-Graz/University of Graz visited the Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship Wednesday July 18, 2012 to participate in a workshop on entrepreneurship and its role in the growth of the science, technology and engineering industries. The visit is part of the two-week City College and TU-Graz/University Summer Program in New York City during which graduate students studying technology, science and engineering participate in a number of intensive programs, workshops and events centered on the role Science and Technology will play in the future.

The students - all graduate or entering graduate schools- heard a presentation by CUNY Institute for Virtual Enterprise heads Stuart Schulman and Christoph Winkler, Field Center director Monica Dean and Field Center Entrepreneur-in-Residence Ray Garcia on the benefits of entrepreneurship, and how they as students can utilize their science skills and backgrounds to develop new businesses. At the conclusion of the seminar, students participated in a pitch competition, where they formed small teams and pitched business concepts to each other. The teams with the best pitches received prizes ranging from books by Baruch entrepreneurship and management Professor Ed Rogoff to Baruch t-shirts.
