Twitter Chat 4/30: Engineering & Entrepreneurship

bb_twitterchatCultural Vistas and the IAESTE program return to host an upcoming Twitter Chat with Big Beacon on the subject of “Entrepreneurship and Engineering”.

This topic is at the forefront of our minds at our nonprofit as we welcome a delegation of six German entrepreneurs, selected and sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, for a two-week visit focused on strengthening entrepreneurship between the U.S. and Germany.

In Wednesday night’s conversation, Cultural Vistas will be exploring the topics of:

  • The intersection of engineering and entrepreneurship
  • The role of social media in start–up culture
  • How entrepreneurship and start–ups are changing the face of engineering and engineering education

Join us for the weekly #BigBeacon Twitter chat at 8:00 pm EST on April 30, 2014 to discuss these topics & more.
