As a part of our organizational dedication to the entrepreneurial spirit, Golden Gate BPO Solutions is an active participant in helping to mentor students at the Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business. Through this involvement, it is our goal to help foster an innovative group of young business leaders that will take their experience and become successful entrepreneurs of the future.
Last month, Golden Gate BPO CEO and Dingman Center Board of Advisors member Stephen B. Ferber, mentored students as a part of Business Management 461, an undergraduate course where classmates form teams and start real-world companies that earned hundreds, even thousands, of dollars. Each team successfully made money in a situation where the students went through an entire cycle of entrepreneurship. Even more important than getting a taste of business success for these studence was the experience of feeling what entrepreneurship truly is about.
