Students from San Joaquin Delta College and Reedley College were among the 10 million students around the world who participated in Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), held November 18-24.
GEW introduces entrepreneurship and innovation to those who otherwise might not have considered it as a career path or as a way to solve real-world problems. The goal is to share uplifting and informative experiences that motivate participants to take action.
Students at San Joaquin Delta College organized several events during GEW, including a “mini market” selling baked goods, an online store for student-designed games, and a “Delta’s Got Talent” competition.
In all of these cases, students created the budgets, marketing plans, and all other aspects of the businesses or events. The “Delta’s Got Talent” competition drew 200 attendees and raised $1200 for the school’s food pantry. The online game store raided more than $250 from 21 sales that was also donated to the food pantry.
Andrzej Kobylanski, Professor of Business and Marketing at San Joaquin Delta College, said GEW provided students with an opportunity to learn firsthand what entrepreneurship is all about.
It was great to see business students engaging with the campus and the local community,” Kobylanski said. “It was a great learning experience for students but also a great community effort to do something good for our own student food pantry.”
Reedley College also hosted several events during GEW, organized by Entrepreneurship Center Coordinator Sara Maokosy. Students had the opportunity to receive professional headshots, hear from local entrepreneurs, and learn more about the college’s CEO Club and its success stories.
