College is the place for experimenting…with new ideas. That’s why governments and businesses invest so heavily in student startups: colleges bring together bright, innovative minds that push back on the status quo and work across disciplines – they’re breeding grounds for great business ideas. So if this collaboration is working so well, why aren’t we collaborating among different campuses and across borders? Panelists associated with Blackstone LaunchPad, a campus based entrepreneurship program funded by Blackstone Charitable Foundation will discuss the opportunity and challenges of connecting student entrepreneurs globally and the benefits of “thinking big” in the business world.
