What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
Join us for an exploration of the entrepreneurial mindset in a discussion between LIU Professor Edward Rogoff, author and former dean of LIU Business School and former director of the Field Center for Entrepreneurship at Baruch College, CUNY; serial entrepreneur and Stage2Startups founder Betty Wong; and psychologist and Live In Their World startup founder Robin Rosenberg. We discuss the transitional challenges of the safety and reliance on salary dependency - paychecks, vacations, paid leave - with the independence and freedom gained from managing one's own time and resources to pursuit an individual passion. The entrepreneurial mindset is a way of thinking that enables you to overcome challenges, be decisive and accept responsibility for your outcomes. We also talk about the impact of having an entrepreneurial mind while working at a corporation for someone else as well as founding one's own company. Betty will start with a series of questions and then will invite audience questions. Attendees can submit their questions in advance when they sign up.
