Scott Shrake will explain why entrepreneurial mindset is important for scientists

Entrepreneurship doesn’t live in business schools alone. An entrepreneurial mindset can be developed in innovators from all backgrounds, disciplines, and skillsets – especially scientists and engineers. Scientists, engineers, and designers are powerhouses of innovation, and those with an entrepreneurial mindset are focused on more than solving technical problems, they’re consistently looking for ways to create value and transform the world. Scott Shrake, director of CSU’s Institute for Entrepreneurship, will discuss the keys to developing an entrepreneurial mindset and the importance of fostering that mindset in the sciences at FORTCAST’s next What’s Brewing in Weather and Climate talk.

As director of CSU’s Institute for Entrepreneurship, Shrake promotes entrepreneurship, innovation, product development, and commercialization for students, faculty, and community members across Northern Colorado. Shrake’s passion is social impact and launching innovative, cutting-edge programming to promote venture creation and entrepreneurial mindset at universities across the globe.

Discussion will begin 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27, upstairs at Tap & Handle. CSU students, bring your ID for $2 off drafts.
