Entrepreneurs Studio

Free Online Learning

Inside the Entrepreneurs Studio at Notre Dame College offers free online learning via a video craft archive of business-based guest lecturers sharing insights on entrepreneurial thinking from their personal and corporate ventures.

Sessions feature national experts in entrepreneurial endeavors ranging from startups and owner-operated firms to acquisitions of nearly century-old companies and mergers with some of the largest corporations in the country. These leaders are founders and presidents, CEOs and public servants. They innovate in industries from engineering to health care to home organization products.

Inspiring Class Forum

Through a question-and-answer class forum, they reveal their dreams and disappointments, successes and failures, and in the process inspire students—and now you—to develop entrepreneurial mindsets.

Inside the Entrepreneurs Studio programming is a spinoff from a Notre Dame undergraduate capstone course in new venture management, which completes the study of owning, operating and managing a small enterprise. College President Thomas G. Kruczek is joined by Notre Dame faculty and members of the College’s Board of Trustees in hosting the sessions.

Complete Craft Archive

This library of approximately hour-long sessions, with one-minute highlights from each of the collections, provides you with an education from Inside the Entrepreneurs Studio at Notre Dame College.
