, Interdisciplinary Collaboration
The Michigan Entrepreneurship Greenhouse was proposed as a way to increase cohesiveness and collaboration across all academic units involved in student entrepreneurial education. The interactive digital platform that serves as the core of the Initiative will enable a “create your own innovation adventure” style experience for U-M entrepreneurship students by making available personalized, user-driven content derived from a cross section of subject matter experts from across the university entrepreneurship ecosystem. This user-driven tool will facilitate sharing of content-generation between the four academic units initially involved in entrepreneurship and will afford the faculty project champions with rich analytics to guide future platform customization. Through the pilot, this tool will serve as a cohesive and collaborative resource to the large, inter-disciplinary pool of U-M students interested in entrepreneurship as they participate in either curricular or co-curricular activities .
