Example of an Entrepreneurship Experience

In their last year of undergrad, JT joined their college’s business incubator program. They spent a term working with a mentor from the local business community to help refine their idea. Working in the college’s space, they had access to the printers, meeting spaces and networking sessions to help build a team and develop a product.

Benefits to Employers

  • Compared to other forms of WIL, entrepreneurship doesn’t as closely involve external employers.
