"We have an excellent leadership team in place this year that is dedicated to continue giving educators a platform to challenge and extend best practices in entrepreneurship education through their innovation in the classrooms; through their efforts to advance novel research questions and translate findings into impactful educational programming; and through co-curricular immersive experiences that play a unique role in their own right and uniquely complementary role to classroom learning.
