According to Islam Sharabash, an engineering student attending University of Illinois who is helping to coordinate the workshop “Our agenda is meant to engage students by facilitating small discussion groups. We’re having two breakout sessions, with multiple groups per session and high profile entrepreneurs in each group. We are also having a business challenge and an entrepreneurship in phases panel, which will include students starting their first business to entrepreneurs with a half-dozen businesses under their belt to entrepreneurs like Carl (Nordgren of Minogi), who are now mentoring and teaching about enterpreneurship.”
