VentureWell is leading a research study in collaboration with Penn State University (Drs. Sarah Zappe and Stephanie Cutler) to explore the impact of Entrepreneurship Support Programs (ESPs) on the professional formation of engineers.

For the next phase of our research, we will convene a series of three virtual workshops to bring social scientists and entrepreneurship researchers together to examine key entrepreneurial attributes and their connection to entrepreneurship education for engineering students. This group will collaborate to develop a white paper to help guide future ESPs to better measure impact.

Workshop Details
Participants will collaborate across a total of three virtual two-hour workshops. In between workshops, participants will work in small teams to collectively complete a white paper on problem solving as it relates to entrepreneurship education. 

We anticipate that participants will work for 12 hours total on the white paper outside of the workshops, for a total time commitment of 18 hours.

The workshop dates are as follows:

  • Workshop 1: Wednesday, February 8, 2023 from 1:00-3:00pm ET
  • Workshop 2: Wednesday, May 24, 2023 from 1:00-3:00pm ET
  • Workshop 3: Wednesday, August 9, 2023 from 1:00-3:00pm ET

All participants will receive a stipend of $2,000 at the conclusion of the final workshop to offset the cost of their participation.
