About this event

The NYU Center for Global Affairs is thrilled to announce the continuation of our webinar series, “Course Pop-ups.” Each Pop-up will be hosted by the instructor for an upcoming course at the CGA. We invite you to join us and hear more about new and timely topics and to experience a snapshot of what you’ll learn as a student in the course!

In our Course Pop-up: Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Adjunct Instructors Simon Sylvester-Chaudhui and Chris Lawlor will persuade you why the world needs innovative, entrepreneurial leaders in order to survive, and not just at startups. A short lecture, “Globally Minded Entrepreneurs will save the world,” will explore why in today's age, we need innovators at all levels of society working towards a better planet, not just at startups, but in academia, global affairs, at NGOs and even large corporations. Great entrepreneurs are, in essence, highly effective and innovative problem solvers. Today, the ability to think and act creatively and differently from the norm is essential for success in all organizations and careers. Join Simon Sylvester-Chaudhuri, the Founder of CIV:LAB, a global non-profit solving urban problems in NYC, Detroit and London, and Chris Lawlor, the Co-Founder of TQ Tezos, a global blockchain startup studio, to learn more about the power of innovation and entrepreneurship in a hyperlocal, yet global world.

About the Course: GLOB1-GC 2292 , Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship (listed under Entrepreneurship in a Global World) offered in Fall 2021.

Every field of study whether it is health care, social work, engineering, policymaking, the arts, and even the non-profit world has problems that need to be solved. And those problems are opportunities. This course will help you convert problems into opportunities through a process that helps you hone your strategy and execution. Entrepreneurship is no longer a domestic field. New entrepreneurs must be globally focused in today’s modern world of game changers. This class will empower students with the key process of global innovation and how to turn ideas into sustainable businesses.
