Business faculty to present at entrepreneurship education conference

Business school professor Scott Kelly has been invited to present at the upcoming North Carolina Entrepreneurship Educators Conference to be held on Nov. 1. 

The invitation is a follow up to Kelly’s 2018 presentation, “Entrepreneurship in Difficult Situations,” in which he outlined ideas on how entrepreneurship can help rural and underserved communities.  This year his presentation will more specifically address how universities can better engage local communities, especially high school students. 

The annual gathering was created for North Carolina educators but tends to attract faculty from all over the country. Other presentation themes include ways to launch artists as leaders and entrepreneurs, the ways entrepreneurship may or may not lead to economic development, how to foster entrepreneurship with limited resources and how to convert in-class exercises to online business course format.

“Leading with purpose usually requires some level of entrepreneurial thinking,” commented Scott Kelly, Entrepreneurship Coordinator and Instructor in the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business.  “Our vision for entrepreneurship at Campbell is to integrate concepts and projects into classes across campus where appropriate.  Then our students will be able to recognize and tackle problems with a systematic framework.” 

The annual conference will be held at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
