“Entrepreneurship is more than just going through the motions of starting a business. It’s all about changing your thinking from the traditional ‘graduate and get a job’ mindset to becoming more of a problem-solver. The projects we worked on forced us to think outside the box, and I still use those principles every day in my work. I think this program would be valuable for anyone, even if they’re not considering starting a business.” Grant Lawson graduated in 2019 and studied Accounting, Finance, Economics, and Entrepreneurship. He now works as a Research Analyst at Kent Lake Capital LLC.
