Entrepreneurship in the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is a rapidly growing and exciting field that spans across almost every industry sector and impacts almost every aspect of modern society.
From energy to manufacturing and software to prototype development, STEM entrepreneurship captures the essence of using Science, Engineering, Math and Technology to produce revenue generating business models.
Dr. Jeffrey Whalen offers a course every spring semester called “Enough To Be Dangerous” that is aimed at teaching students how to be effective entrepreneurs in STEM enabled ventures by touring the Tallahassee area startups, established companies, innovation foundries and ecosystem building organizations.
