Nearly every organization today seems to encourage its managers, administrators, executives and other employees to be more entrepreneurial. Colleges and universities have launched entrepreneurship centres to develop innovators and mentor future business leaders. As the economy evolves, full-time jobs in conventional organizations will become scarcer. New technologies and changing consumer tastes will demolish professions and traditional careers. Nevertheless, there are ways of thinking that helps to convert anyone into an entrepreneur.

Join fellow U of T Engineering alumni for lunch on Wednesday, December 14th to learn about how you can develop ways of thinking to nurture your inner entrepreneur — including four critical decisions successful entrepreneurs make about their operations and three ways to revive your vision and company.
