This past Friday Outsell was proud to host the Entrepreneurial Scholars students (E-Scholars) from the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Minnesota. The E-Scholars program provides students the opportunity to design and create their own world-class business venture and is open to all disciplines.
Now on its 7th group of students, the E-Scholars participate in a 3 course sequence in entrepreneurial studies, including national and international travel and several opportunities to meet with successful entrepreneurs.
We were honored to have the opportunity to share the entrepreneurial spirit and background of Outsell with the E-Scholars, who ranged from international students like Jessey Niyongabo from Africa hoping to bring car rental services to campus, to Eden Prairie, MN, native Rebecca Scholz with dreams of starting her own plus-sized wedding dress shop. There were eleven students in all who visited with Outsell, including Director of the Donald McNeely Center for Entrepreneurship, Terri Barreiro, and Management & Entrepreneurship Professor, Paul Marsnik.
