Creating an Entrepreneurial Culture
Programs Nurture Entrepreneurial Efforts
Entrepreneurship and innovation are core drivers of sustainable growth in a country. That’s why Intel, building on its heritage of innovation, collaborates with governments, educators, NGOs and industry to help build capacity in these areas. Intel’s entrepreneurship initiatives increase individual employability, drive innovation and accelerate economic growth with a focus on computing technology.
Promoting Entrepreneurship via Global Competitions
The Intel® Global Challenge promotes entrepreneurship around the world and showcases business opportunities that have the greatest potential for a positive impact on society through the deployment of innovative technologies. It is also an opportunity to access practical resources and gain exposure to venture capitalists, governments, NGOs, and universities.
Hundreds of students participated in regional competitions to showcase their ideas and innovations. The winning entries from these Intel entrepreneurship programs and regional challenges then went to the final Intel Global Challenge event at UC Berkeley.
Providing Entrepreneurial Resources
Entrepreneurism is not always taught in-depth at universities nor understood by policy makers. So Intel has collaborated with UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business and other affiliates to develop curriculum. For more information on curriculum resources, contact Intel Higher Ed Customer Support.
Venturing into the real world
Many of the students who participate in our entrepreneurship programs and contests go on to launch successful businesses based upon the technologies or products they’ve invented. The entrepreneurial concepts they’ve learned enable them to go on to become innovative leaders in their countries.
