Event description

Description

This three part series will allow students to take a deeper look into the world of entrepreneurship from understanding what skills you need (and likely already have) to learning where to begin and how to get others on board. These workshops are perfect for budding entrepreneurs but are also useful leadership skills in all areas.

The Registration link will allow you to register for all or any of the labs in this series. We encourage you to take all three workshops in this series but it is not required


Discover Your Entrepreneurial Spirit
Instructor: Nathalie Molina Niño
Wednesday, October 3, 6:30pm – 8pm
Location: Athena Center Conference Room (4th Floor of Milstein)

Entrepreneurs are people who think out of the box and make their own rules. But where do they begin? Does becoming an entrepreneur require specific expertise, innate skills, gall, or luck? In this workshop, we will introduce the principles, skills and ideas that it takes to be successful in the startup world. You will learn how to harness entrepreneurial spirit—the ability to be flexible, persistent and adaptable—in every aspect of your life. Spoiler alert: you already have all the skills you need!

Nathalie Molina Niño is the CEO at Brava Investments. She is entirely focused on outcomes, and is committed to delivering returns to investors while making a catalytic impact on women in the world. A technologist and coder by training, Nathalie is a consummate entrepreneur, and a storyteller at heart. Molina Niño co-founded Entrepreneurs@Athena at the Athena Center for Leadership studies of Barnard College, with the mission of leveling the playing field for women entrepreneurs. Nathalie launched her first tech startup at the age of 20.

Crafting A Pitch
Instructor: Avani Patel
Wednesday, October 17, 5pm – 6:30pm
Location: Athena Center Conference Room (4th Floor of Milstein)

In this fast-paced interactive workshop, participants will learn how to craft a dynamic entrepreneurial pitch. We will identify the critical elements of content that should make their way into every pitch and demonstrate how to deliver those elements in the most compelling way.

Innovative Tools for Social Impact
Instructor: Garance Choko
Wednesday, October 24, 5pm – 6:30pm
Location: Athena Center Conference Room, (4th Floor of Milstein)

Utilizing cutting-edge design and systems thinking tools such as participatory design, power mapping and rapid prototyping, students will learn how to expose complex social realities and appropriately define social impact. Students will map interrelated factors that perpetuate social and economic inequality and develop a series of pathways that can positively and sustainably impact targeted communities.
