Description

ASUs Entrepreneurship Innovation (EI) (Entrepreneurship Inclusion Challenge) (ASUF 30007397) ASUs Entrepreneurship + Innovation (E+I) (Entrepreneurship Inclusion Challenge) Based on our interactions with the leadership of many entrepreneurship programs and organizations, we believe that, in general, leaders want to include a diverse population of participants in their programs, but do not currently have the time or knowledge to do so. With funding from the Kauffman Inclusion Challenge, we will help 20 program leaders across the university and the community use design thinking to ensure that their programs are truly inclusive. Design thinking is a human-centered, opportunistic, collaborative and experimental approach to innovation. The design thinking process involves five steps: discovery, interpretation, ideation, experimentation and evolution. We will cover discovery, interpretation and ideation in a daylong design thinking workshop, and those who complete the workshop will receive up to $5,000 in seed funding to experiment and evolve, with consistent support from E+I over the next 11 months. In this way, program leaders and E+I will collaborate to make programs across the university and the community more inclusive.
