About the event
In this talk, Mark will discuss what the ‘entrepreneurial mindset’ means and the importance of it. He will utilize his own case study of how 33 Buckets came to be as an example to illustrate the facets of the ‘entrepreneurial mindset’ and what it means to him. In doing so, Mark will share the story of how he completed an EPICS class project to provide clean water to a community in Bangladesh, and how he was able to leverage this experience, and the resources at ASU, to begin scaling to other communities in Peru and the Dominican Republic. Mark will interweave some of the learning outcomes he experienced at different junctures of working on 33 Buckets and how these all amounted to him developing an ‘entrepreneurial mindset’. He will conclude his talk by providing tips on how others can utilize their college experiences to cultivate an ‘entrepreneurial mindset’ and develop themselves as people to become changemakers.
