TRIPLE III TIME: IDEAS UNLIMITED CLUB
Innovation…Public Sector Innovation…IDEA GENERATION…and ENTREPRENEURSHIP in any form have been a vital part of my personal and professional life. No matter the organization and/or the challenge…my “There Is Always A Better Way” attitude, motivates me to go beyond what may be expected by those around me.
So what do you do to pass along this package of creative energy and drive in a meaningful, 21st century way?
You start a northern Michigan IDEAS UNLIMITED CLUB!
This week in partnership with Central Michigan University, Alpena Community College and 20+ high schools in northern Michigan, we held our first IDEAS UNLIMITED CLUB session.
Just to help everyone understand the IDEAS UNLIMITED CLUB is an Entrepreneurship-Driven “cooperative-partnership” focused on blending the business/community development learning efforts of Central Michigan University’s Isabella Bank Institute for Entrepreneurship, Alpena Community College and select Northeast Michigan School Districts. The principle function of the IDEAS UNLIMITED CLUB cooperative partnership is not just the sharing of basic Entrepreneurship concepts and processes, but also the employment of a unique monthly, structured Mentoring Moment facilitated by CMU students/affiliates engaged in Entrepreneurship coursework/projects that is shared with engaged community college and high school students.
How did we do: “Just Right!” The use of video-conferencing technology made the face-to-face “feel” a vital contribution. There was a lot of listening by all…but the importance of idea-sharing…for some maybe for the first time…was so COOL!
Yes I am passionate about the IDEAS UNLIMITED CLUB. And if it helps even one young adult across our multi-county Michigan region, we are all ENTREPRENEURSHIP WINNERS!
