Foreward by Dr. Garven: I am forwarding an email from Ms. Kate Westrick, who is with the American Enterprise Institute. The Values & Capitalism Weekend Honors Program: Entrepreneurship & Human Flourishing, which is scheduled for November 8-10 in Austin, TX, is a fantastic opportunity and I hope that some of you will be able to participate!
I just wanted to send a quick reminder about the upcoming Values & Capitalism Weekend Honors Program: Entrepreneurship & Human Flourishing. This program is a fully-funded, intensive three-day seminar on business and entrepreneurship for 25 Christian undergraduate students. The program will take place from Friday, November 8 to Sunday, November 10 and will be held in Austin, Texas. The deadline is just ten days away!
Participants will take part in three core tutorials – a team-oriented problem solving exercise, a Harvard Business School case study, and a discussion about faith, personal identity, and failing by design. Students will also engage in several practicums on design thinking, business model canvassing, career design, and vocational mapping. Beyond these sessions, students will have the opportunity to hear from prominent Christian business leaders and participate in site visits to local businesses.
You can learn more about this program and apply here! The application deadline is September 23. See below for more details.
If you are a student, we encourage you to consider applying for this opportunity!
