‘We want to teach a new way’: Student entrepreneur network aims to teach student entrepreneurship
NEW YORK — An entrepreneurial student network launched by two University of Tennessee students aims to create a community of students, alumni and others who share the same values.
The group’s goal is to provide a platform for students and alumni to share experiences and experiences in ways that will make a positive impact on the world, said Molly O’Brien, a UT student entrepreneur who founded the network.
O’Brien said her network hopes to create an environment where students, alumnae and others can share their ideas and share their experiences, while also providing an outlet for others to share their thoughts on a wide range of issues, including race, religion and gender.
“We want our students to have the freedom to express their ideas, and to have opportunities to learn from other students and to learn with others who have the same goals,” O’Briensaid.
“This is something we really believe in, because we believe in students and students sharing ideas, not just giving them away.”
The group, known as UTStudentEntrepreneurs, is the brainchild of two UT students who have already formed the network, according to the group’s website.
Its mission statement states, “We are committed to providing students, the alumni and the broader UT community an opportunity to network, learn, and share.
Our vision is to help students and their communities learn from each other, develop their own ideas, find new connections and grow together.”
O’Brien said she plans to partner with the university’s Entrepreneurship Alliance, which helps entrepreneurs and their businesses get on the same page.
“The Entrepreneurships Alliance, with the help of our faculty, provides resources and services that help entrepreneurs grow their business and help businesses compete for students,” she said.
“We want UTStudentEnterrepreneurs to be a place where students can share experiences, connect and learn.”
