Carlson Ventures Enterprise focuses on both corporate venturing and entrepreneurial businesses, and associates indicate their preference for available projects. Directors make the final team selections based on student preferences and skill sets. Team members take primary responsibility for projects, but each team has a Ventures Enterprise director as an advisor to provide guidance and feedback as needed.
Generally, associates focus on either the corporate or entrepreneurial track for their project work. In the classroom, we strive to cover both kinds of ventures as well as highlight their similarities and differences.
