Entrepreneurs change their industries through new products, unique services and, above all, innovative ideas. KVC works to inspire those new ideas through its educational materials and programs including managerial and strategic tools, interviews with thought leaders, and resources for continuing education. Over the course of 2009, we produced podcasts designed to provide KVC entrepreneurs with academic and industry expertise, and covered topics such as social entrepreneurism, lessons learned from NBC’s Apprentice participants, and lectures on disruptive innovation theories. Our educational videos, drawn from universities from across the country, cover topics ranging from using an innovation radar to focus entrepreneurial energy, to improving competitiveness, to lessons in “selling” innovation in established corporate environments. We also held the first session in our new entrepreneurial lecture series. The session was a course in writing effective business plans taught by Kellogg Professor Barry Merkin.
