During Fall 2009 and Spring 2010, I led a course on Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the University of Illinois. The course was especially targeted toward first-year engineering students interested in technical startups and social entrepreneurship. In addition to Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the iFoundry program offers a plethora of courses and opportunities for engineering students.
The enrollment of students in iFoundry courses quadrupled between Fall 2009 and Fall 2010. Along with star students Kevin Wolz, Claire Slupski, Aman Kapur, Jenny Roderick, and Jaime Kelleher; and course staff Lisa Mazzocco and Britany Patterson, I offer a few highlights about the iFoundry program and our accomplishments.
