Robert Tobin, Associate Director and Entrepreneur-In-Residence, Center for Entrepreneurship, University of Rochester
What are the similarities and differences between business entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship? Robert Tobin will discuss trends that are redefining the role of contemporary entrepreneurs. He will be joined by a University of Rochester undergraduate who is part of the Kauffman Entrepreneurship Year (KEY) program and a Simon Graduate School of Business MBA candidate who participated in an entrepreneurial internship this summer. The KEY program enables students to devote up to one academic year to internships, special projects, business plan development, and research into various facets of entrepreneurship. Students in the Simon E Internship program develop business plans, marketing plans, and marketing strategies for local small businesses and not-for-profit organizations.
