The Resilient Entrepreneur Learning Series

Shift your mindset to become a resilient entrepreneur.


Entrepreneurship is not an easy road. It means failing. A lot. Trying a new idea when the last one did not work. Overcoming hurdles over and over again. Asking for help. Developing yourself just as valiantly as you develop your business. 

The Resilient Entrepreneur learning series teaches both students and local entrepreneurs how to use adversity to your advantage and how to pivot your idea when it does not gain traction, plus strategies to shift your mindset and habits to become a resilient entrepreneur. The most successful entrepreneurs have proven that success is not defined by how much you fail. Success happens when you are resilient and try again. And again. And again. It's not an easy journey but being an entrepreneur gives you the opportunity to pursue the ultimate passion project.

The Resilient Entrepreneur learning series builds on the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Catalyzer’s mission to empower entrepreneurs with the values, knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes that enable them to create world-changing innovations.
