Lunch and Lead: Youth Innovation with Don Wettrick
April 11 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
Entrepreneurship is a key skillset for the future. It is not just good enough that anyone can be an innovator. At some point we have to engage with people and develop their skills.
This month’s guest is working with high school students across the state of Indiana, presenting them with opportunities to explore entrepreneurship as a way to prepare them for an uncertain future. Not everyone has to be an entrepreneur, but everyone will need to be able to think like one.
