Dick Blanc is a 1982 graduate of Cedarville University who has been one of the catalysts for creating the Beyond Startup Accelerator, the business incubator at Cedarville University that connects students and alumni to expert counsel and potential funding in the business world.
In this second podcast with Blanc, he talks about how the Accelerator can develop hundreds of new culture-creating, biblical-worldview-holding entrepreneurs who can lead and change the future marketplace. It is happening through the entrepreneurship minor available to all majors on campus, through mentorship by Entrepreneurs in Residence and through Pitch events where students have the opportunity to present unique business concepts for cash prizes and current entrepreneurs have the opportunity to raise capital.
