guayacan-logoFor the 10th year in a row the Guayacán Center will be organizing and co-sponsoring an opportunity for members of Puerto Rico’s academic and entrepreneurial communities to attend the “Price-Babson Symposium for Entrepreneurship Educatorsin Massachusetts in the Spring.

During an intensive four-day period, from May 27-31, participants will explore the entrepreneurial process, the “art and craft” of teaching and learning entrepreneurship, according to a program description on Babson’s website.

The program provides an introduction to case method teaching and live, venture-based teaching methodologies. Attendees are encouraged to identify, plan, and personalize their entry (or re-entry) strategy into academia, and to improve as teachers, learners, researchers, colleagues, and entrepreneurs. They identify and explore new content, programs, and materials.

By co-sponsoring the event with the Puerto Rico Industrial Development Company, Guayacán seeks to support the “development of highly motivated academics and entrepreneurs deeply committed to world-class entrepreneurship education in Puerto Rico.”

The deadline to submit the online application is Feb. 28th at 5 p.m. Babson limits attendance is limited to 60 participants and accepts registration on a first-come, first-served basis.
