My Entrepreneurship Practicum gives us an opportunity to fail; you don’t think about it, but it takes dozens of failed ideas in brainstorming before you arrive at a solid basis. For our semester-long project of engaging with Danish start-up companies, I have been challenged to make connections in Copenhagen with contacts and potential customers, and have realized the necessity of staying motivated to really bring an idea to life. I love getting to collaborate with individuals in the organization and find inspiration from full-time entrepreneurs in Copenhagen and Europe.”
