One of the objectives of the JCU Institute for Entrepreneurship is to provide education and training in the fundamentals of best entrepreneurial practices. Every semester the Institute invites 20+ entrepreneurs to the classroom to share their experience in real time. This allows students to network, learn about the entrepreneurial landscape in Italy, get a real sense of how to identify a business opportunity, and gather the resources needed to go from idea to implementation.
