Gotta submit that PhD!
To my listeners,
I started this podcast because I was amazed at the stories shared by the studentpreneurs I interviewed for my PhD. I decided these stories had to be shared with the world to motivate other potential studentpreneurs out there.
I love doing those interviews, there is always so much to learn and it keeps me motivated when writing my thesis. For me, contribution to the practice is as important as contribution to theory, maybe sometimes more.
These interviews also help me understand how I can help studentpreneurs once I am an academic. Long story short I would love to be part of a University that values studentpreneurs. I have started working on how I would organise classes. For me, it’s all about practice with a touch of theory from time to time. I can see my first years working toward participating in a hackathon or a startup weekend. Then classes for the second year and third year would be run as an accelerator program. Grades would be based on effectiveness of customer validation and other real life criteria… I can go on and on If you know a university who is looking for an academic like that, tell them about me;)
