Last month, I returned from USASBE where the Social Venture Clinic, a day-long exposure to raising funds through hands-on workshops was chosen as the finalist in the 3E Learning Competition. What is 3E Learning? This is a community of entrepreneurship educators that share class exercises, games, projects, and experiments that instructors create to enhance teaching in entrepreneurship. The 3E-Learning.org site disseminates these entrepreneurial experiential exercises to other instructors.
In the spirit of sharing, here are the workshops that we are holding tomorrow.
