LOS ANGELES, JAN. 25, 2018 -- THE UNITED STATES ASSOCIATION OF SMALL BUSINESS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP (USASBE) CELEBRATED ITS ANNUAL USASBE AWARDS PROGRAM AND HONORED EDUCATORS, INNOVATORS, RESEARCHERS, AND LEADERS IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP EDUCATION. THE EVENT WAS HELD AT THE YOUNES AND SORAYA NAZARIAN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS AT CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY – NORTHRIDGE.

 

USASBE honors extraordinary achievements each year through a variety of awards: Max S. Wortman Lifetime Achievement Award, the John E. Hughes Award for Entrepreneurial Advocacy, USASBE Educator of the Year, USASBE Volunteer of the Year, Excellence in Entrepreneurship Awards, numerous research paper and case awards, and various track awards for teaching, research and workshops. Each of these award categories elevates the efforts and impact of entrepreneurship education in higher education.

 

2018 USASBE Awards Chair, Megan Matthews of University of Wisconsin-Whitewater shared, “There were many high-quality submissions this year. The recipients of the 2018 USASBE Awards stood out with their innovative curriculum, thoughtful research and inclusive programming. It was an intense and rewarding process.”

Over 30 judges from 14 institutions across five countries – many of whom represented universities that previously won USASBE program awards -- had a challenging time deciding on award recipients. “We feel it is important that the organization recognizes the colleges and individuals who create, innovate and lead the way in building excellence through entrepreneurship education,” said Dr. Jeff Vanevenhoven, Senior Vice-president of Programming at USASBE and the Irvin L. Young Professor of Entrepreneurship at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

Dr. Heidi Neck, the Jeffry A. Timmons Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies at Babson University and President of USASBE said, “The events of the weekend marked the first awards program under USASBE’s updated mission of being an inclusive community advancing entrepreneurship education through bold teaching, scholarship, and practice. Through participation in our awards program winners and runners-up share their ingenuity, passion, and efforts. The future of entrepreneurship shines brighter today because of their involvement.”


The 2018 USASBE Conference welcomed representatives from 254 universities and 24 countries with a record of 407 submissions covering entrepreneurship education topics in research, teaching, and programming.  “Over 525 diverse attendees came together to share their successes and challenges in a new conference architecture that encouraged deep engagement and thoughtful conversations in both structured and unstructured environments,” said Julienne Shields, the Conference Chair and Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at Millikin University.
