Professor Teresa Nelson talks women entrepreneurs on NECN
On Friday, I mentioned that the SOM's entrepreneurship program was ranked one of the top 25 programs in the entire nation. But, what's even more exciting is that it's the only program designed specifically for women to make the list.
Later that day, SOM Professor Teresa Nelson joined NECN's Laytoia Edwards to discuss exactly how we tailor our program to meet the needs of women. She says the SOM's program is unique because it focuses on teaching students how to navigate through their social realities. For example, women entrepreneurs typically receive less than 10% of venture capital compared with 90% for men. When asked how the SOM helps women tap into more funding, Teresa says we do what any good business school does: we help students to understand what the issues are, build competitive business plans, and how to "talk business." Enjoy!
