Track II – Engagement with Young Companies
Student Entrepreneurship: the pros and cons

  11:00-12:30

The involvement of the TTO in student entrepreneurship varies greatly from institution to institution. Some TTOs have a hands-off approach rarely engaging with students, while other TTOs embrace this huge resource in a very pro-active way. This session will explore the pros and cons of each approach. Does student entrepreneurship enhance or endanger the TTO mission?
