Asst Dir of Recr & Admissions
I arrived at WPI in 2000 prepared to build campus-wide experiential entrepreneurship and innovation programs. By 2005, the Collaborative for Entrepreneurship & Innovation was nationally ranked by Entrepreneur Magazine. Today I serve two needs; 1) critiquing invention and business ideas, and 2) leading teams in competitive grant or business plan proposal advising. But, I also contribute I&E resources to WPI’s Coleman Foundation-funded non-business faculty Fellows and coordinate with our Entrepreneur-in-Residence to provide innovative experiential programs to our faculty and students.
The two most unanticipated states that entrepreneurs and innovators can find themselves entangled in are ambiguity and uncertainty. I use this approach in advising students and faculty with new product and/or service ideas – be assured that either or both will happen and don’t let it thwart you. Carry on. And, wearing this I&E hat, I have also reduced the process down to three simple tests: 1) The Idea, Invention or Innovation; 2) Who Cares? and 3) What’s the Finish Line? (I will be happy to explain the mad simplicity and you can start using the same techniques in your own approaches.)
Last but not least, as a critic of funding proposals and pitches, I am a great and passionate grant specialist with decades of experience organizing and honing pitches to many types of funders and funding agencies. With a business faculty member significantly involved in your project, I can aid in the submission. Otherwise, we seek approval from above prior to starting work. My competitive tenacity and high levels of energy have helped many teams over the years prepare better proposals and/or resubmittals.
