In a move that will see Stanford increase its position as one of the most innovative institutions in the world, the university’s new Chair of Entrepreneurship Dan Thompson says that it is to create ‘Entrepreneurship Dorms’.
The move is part of a number of innovations to streamline students’ path to entrepreneurship when they start to study at the university and will be an umbrella destination that encompasses all of Stanford’s various entrepreneurial departments which include SSE labs – the student run accelerator we covered a few months back.
Dan and his team plan to make Stanford the most innovative student body in the world, and setting up ‘startup dorms’ is one step towards that goal. There will also be an entrepreneurial go-to person in every other dorm. You can hear more of Dan’s plans in the interview above.
