Visit the three day conference and enjoy meeting other young entrepreneurs, dancing with new friends and speaking to successful entrepreneurs.
1. Meet people from all around the world
The global pull of the Diamond Challenge Summit is nothing short of incredible and that means new friends from all sorts of places. Kelly Landis, a Diamond Challenge Ambassador and current Entrepreneurship & Technology Innovation major, said “The diversity at The Summit is just so special. Seeing people from so many different countries who were all driven, passionate, motivated people who wanted to share their thoughts on ideas was really eye opening and exciting. The people I met are really interested in using their talents and entrepreneurship to create positive change in the world.” Sounds great! But let’s take a step back for a minute, because if we are being real, meeting so many new people all at once can be a tad overwhelming. But don’t stress, Sierra Ryan-Wallick, another Diamond Challenge Ambassador, adds her thoughts below.
2. Find common ground with other motivated students
“Initially, everyone stays with their groups but as people grew more comfortable I got the chance to meet people from Africa, Moldova and Costa Rica,” said Ryan-Wallick. “Entrepreneurship brings people together in so many different ways. With people pitching how to solve their community’s problems, everyone gets to enter the conversation on a level playing field and find space for collaboration to improve everyone’s projects and reach their goals.” The Summit is a fantastic place to engage with other young students interested and empowered by entrepreneurship. The youth of today will define the future of tomorrow through vehicles like entrepreneurship, as many successful entrepreneurs can attest! Which, speaking of…
