Innovation Workshop with Stanford Research Institute
-Education and Resources for Unique Needs
of Student Entrepreneurs
On February 1 and 2, the Yonsei Enterprise Support Foundation hosted “The Introduction to Innovation Workshop” with the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). During the workshop, SRI faculty visited Yonsei, explaining their entrepreneurial education system and providing resources for student entrepreneurs. Yonsei is the first South Korean institution to adopt SRI entrepreneurship education. SRI is one of the top think tanks in the United States, and, for many years, it has been providing high-quality education specifically designed to cultivate entrepreneurs.
Due to Stanford University’s long history of technological innovation, entrepreneurship, and placing graduates in top companies, Yonsei students were eager to register for the workshop. Over the course of the two days, students learned from established entrepreneurs, gaining a better understanding of the market and customers, as well as how to conduct effective market research and prototype ideas.
Yonsei faculty members who teach entrepreneurship also participated in the workshop. In the future, Yonsei Enterprise Support Foundation is planning to provide continuing entrepreneurship education through the “Train the Trainer” program. Professors who complete the program will earn a license and go on to create new courses that educate and support potential student entrepreneurs.
Since the start of 2016, Yonsei has created twenty-seven entrepreneurship courses, which combine cutting-edge theory and real-world expertise.
