Values & Capitalism Honors Weekend
The 2018 Values & Capitalism Weekend Honors Program, to be hosted at The Catholic University of America in partnership with The Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship, is an intensive seminar on business and entrepreneurship for 25 Christian undergraduate students from colleges and universities across the country. Unlike a traditional academic seminar, the program will consist primarily of hands-on exercises and activities that encourage entrepreneurial thinking. It will also provide a unique chance for students to integrate their faith with their interests in business and entrepreneurship through discussions and high-level networking opportunities with Christian leaders working in entrepreneurial careers.
Travel and stipends:
Honors students will be reimbursed for all travel expenses, and will be provided lodging and meals throughout the duration of the program. Students must arrive in DC on Thursday evening, November 8 and check out of their hotel rooms by 11:00am on Sunday, November 11, but may book travel out of DC at their convenience.
For more information or to apply by the deadline of SEPTEMBER 26, 2018, visit the AEI Values & Capitalism website.
Many of the other students in attendance had travelled extensively and were even working on their own start-up ventures- neither if which I have done. I was intimidated to say the least. But over the course of the weekend we all got to know one another and bonded through the shared experiences of the lectures, workshops, and exploring the city. The people I met that weekend were extraordinary, and there was definitely some incredible networking going on!
By the time everything was over, I felt at home. I had learned so much, both about entrepreneurship for human flourishing (also known as redemptive entrepreneurship) and about myself. The program was absolutely fantastic, and I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who is interested in entrepreneurship and how it fits into God’s greater plan for humanity. Rachel Smith '19
