Graham Henshaw

The College of William & Mary is the second oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, chartered in 1693, and it is one of the leading liberal arts universities in the country. Keeping with their tradition of forward-thinking, President Katherine A. Rowe has emphasized entrepreneurial thinking as a core tenet of the school’s goals moving forward.

One way they do this is through their Alan B. Miller Entrepreneurship Center, a place designed to “educate, inspire, and support students in developing the skills and mindset of an entrepreneur.” While supporting students who want to start or grow a business, the center is more focused on the skills and attitudes entrepreneurs exhibit, as they are valuable and, in many ways, necessary to meet the challenges of the modern world. 

In this webinar, Graham Henshaw, Executive Director of the Miller Entrepreneurship Center, will join us to discuss how the center is fostering entrepreneurial skills throughout the student body of W&M and its community. Join us to see how they’ve adapted to barriers such as COVID-19, as well as how they think beyond the confines of startup support.
