CoLA Festival of Ideas: The Entrepreneurial Spark in Liberal Arts

The UTA College of Liberal Arts hosts an Entrepreneurship Forum on Friday, February 9, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the University Center, Bluebonnet Ballroom. We encourage any faculty or graduate and undergraduate students who have ever thought about starting a business to attend some or all of the forum (see the full agenda). Register now! REGISTER no later than Feb 1, 2018. 

This half-day annual forum, “The Entrepreneurial Spark in Liberal Arts” will include thoughtful discussions by scholars and industry experts about entrepreneurship from inception of a bright idea to fruition.  Many people have ideas, few have good ideas, but only a tiny fraction of those people have taken those ideas and actioned them into a successful business. 

Liberal arts graduates have a great base of training for turning an idea into a plan of action whether in business, research, or creative projects, we tend to understand what comes after the "spark."

While some experts believe that effective far-reaching change must be driven from the top down or can only be rooted in deep, detailed planning, UTA’s College of Liberal Arts encourages you to not be afraid of exploring entrepreneurship. Exploring entrepreneurship says to the world that “I have a solution to a problem” that I think can be “sparked” locally, within my community, with bottom-up experimentation.  

The 2018 Festival of Ideas: “The Entrepreneurial Spark in Liberal Arts” is free and open to the public and grad/undergraduate students; breakfast and lunch are provided to registered attendees. REGISTER no later than Feb 1, 2018.
