The Bay Area Entrepreneur Center (BAEC) held its first Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Entrepreneur Accelerator class on Monday, September 19, 2016. The class participants included Skyline College students and faculty and community members —eight participants in all. All class lecture sessions are held at the BAEC and taught by Adjunct Faculty member Terri Wade. All hands-on activities are conducted in the Fabrication Laboratory (Fab Lab) at the Skyline College campus and are led by Nick Langhoff and Marco Wehrfritz.
This program delves into the mechanics of entrepreneurship and teaches participants to develop soft skills and learn to create prototypes in the new, state-of-the-art Fab Lab. The course will culminate with a business pitch competition. This will allow students a unique opportunity to pitch their business ideas in front of investors.
This program is an industry collaboration between Skyline College and Base11. This program is open to all potential entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to stand out as leaders in the STEM industry.
