Governor's School for Entrepreneurs
Cultivating the Mindset!
We are activating the innate entrepreneurial spirit, cultivating the mindset and propagating the next generation of entrepreneurship in Kentucky. Our entrepreneurs have spent a lot of time with their team, working to bring their ideas to life. Here are the highlights of Week 2 at GSE 2018! Demo Day is on the horizon - and our teen entrepreneurs are ready to pitch!
Bringing Ideas to Life!
GSE at TMMK!
Lean Startup Methodology is an anchor at GSE. Lean Startup comes from Lean Thinking, which is a management approach famously applied in Toyota’s factory production system. TMMK is always a highlight of GSE, as our entrepreneurs visually experience and apply what we've discussed during a learning session.
Team Cornett at GSE
Team Cornett met with our entrepreneurs this week. They discussed branding and marketing, and consulted with each team to help them develop their company's brand identity. To learn more about Cornett, visit: https://teamcornett.com/
Kentucky for Kentucky
GSE entrepreneurs visited Kentucky for Kentucky earlier this week and learned about the story behind their entrepreneurial journey. They're a small company dedicated to promoting the state of Kentucky and the culture of the Bluegrass state.
Challenge 1: Disruptive Thinking
Lots of funny faces and laughs during our surprise Challenge 1 at GSE! Teams were given the opportunity to win extra cash to spend on their business. For the challenge, teams had to analyze current products and ideas, and then use different approaches to innovate. Disruptive thinking is looking at an object or idea and coming up with an entirely different way to achieve the same end. We have seen them apply this concept to their own solutions over the last week!
