I have the joy of teaching a Technology Entrepreneurship class at L'École Polytechnique de Montréal. Picture a class of 50 students who have been trained for 4+ intensive years to think inside the Engineering Box, to memorize what the box holds and to apply standards of the box in their jobs - and you get 50 minds hungry for creativity. My class is usually the last one of their engineering studies so it puts me in a great position to counter-act the brain-washing years they were subjected to. I know... I've been there.
Hello, my name is Jean and I am a computer engineer. Hi Jean, I hear you utter in a fake caring voice.
Feeling lonely at the top is a natural by-product of being an entrepreneur. There are so many issues to deal with on a daily basis and a dozen different actors to satisfy, all at the same time. The need, therefore, for like-minded individuals and confidential sounding boards becomes imminent.
I realize that with a title like that, I need to back it up with solid facts and credible evidence. No problem.
There is a story I often use to talk about true commitment.
I often ask the question to my university students : "'Why do you want to be entrepreneurs, to start your business ?"
