HIGHER EDUCATION ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM
The Program Experience
Students interested in entrepreneurship, based on their own interests, interview innovators and entrepreneurs. They then write articles published online.
Enhance Professional Networks
Learn Critical Communication Skills
Gain Inspiration on How to Bring Ideas to Life
Connect to Alumni
Eight short dynamic videos (5-10 minutes each), a student workbook, an accompanying curriculum guide and supplemental live webinars.
Students interview an entrepreneur whose work aligns to their interest. Potentially, this can be an alumna / alumnus, thus serving as an engaging way to connect current to former students.
Student articles are published on Global Innovators Academy's website and potentially the student’s LinkedIn profile and your entrepreneurship center's website.
The timing will vary - typically it will be 1-2 months.
Feedback would come not only from students' professors, but potentially also from a global audience.

Haley Panessa, International Business Major at Rollins College
"The Interview an Innovator course was highly valuable. I used the experience to interview the co-founder of a major US clothing retailer. This broadened my networking, communications and career development skills. It also gave me the confidence and knowledge as to how I can work on my professional growth during these early stages of my life. I would highly recommend this course as it brings you an exciting experience that teaches you lessons and provides you connections that you will carry for the rest of your life."
Jamie Mishich, Entrepreneurship and Marketing Major at St. Thomas University
"Through the Interview an Innovator program, I was able to interview a very interesting entrepreneur and to hear unique perspectives on how to launch a company. I also learned valuable writing and communications skills that I haven't previously been exposed to. The program has switched my mindset and my understanding of marketing/communications and has really given me a new avenue for my creativity and new skills to master. I know that I will be able to use these communications skills for my own entrepreneurial ventures in the future."
