Bhubaneswar: National Entrepreneurship Network (NEN) of Wadhwani Foundation and Trident Academy of Technology organized a three days Entrepreneurship Educator Program for faculty and educators recently.
The goal of this program was to orient teachers and professors to build a creative space and platform for discovery; both self-discovery and opportunity discovery for students. The training was organised so that participating faculty members will have the ideas, tools, support and network to enable them to guide students to discover their strengths in terms of an entrepreneurial founding team and learn key techniques such as opportunity discovery, prototyping, competition analysis and early customer insights.
The three day intensive training has made faculty members confident and they believe that will be able to direct and assist students in online and campus activities such as idea competitions and workshops.
