Intellectual Entrepreneurship Makes a Splash in June Education Publications

July 10, 2012

TG, the organization also known as Texas Guaranteed Student Loan Corporation, touted Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE) in several issues of its online newsletter AIEMail.

It began the series with a piece on “The Entrepreneurial Mindset,” which discussed how the qualities of entrepreneurs are desirable even in entry-level positions. The second piece, “The Entrepreneurial Mindset on Campus” was a short article about Intellectual Entrepreneurship and included an interview with Dr. Rick Cherwitz, founder of IE.  The final piece was “The Entrepreneurial Mindset: A University/Community Collaboration.”  It was a discussion of how IE is partnering with community groups to give high school students an opportunity to develop entrepreneurial skills in order to develop a pathway to college. It described IE’s partnership with E4Youth last summer.

Also in June, Dr. Cheritz also had a piece published in Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education,  “Why Intellectual Entrepreneurship Can Increase Diversity.”
