Student Business Innovations Shine in Creative Showcase at The Columns, Washington and Lee University

Washington and Lee University’s Connolly Center for Entrepreneurship Hosts First Creative Showcase

Washington and Lee University’s Connolly Center for Entrepreneurship is hosting its first Creative Showcase on April 4 from 5-8 p.m. The event will take place at the Houston H. Harte Center for Teaching and Learning in Leyburn Library and is open to the public free of charge.

The showcase aims to bridge the gap between academic theory and entrepreneurial practice by giving W&L students a platform to showcase their innovative skills. Students have worked in teams to develop their own business concepts and products to present at the Creative Showcase, providing them with a practical experience that will help them navigate the real-world dynamics of entrepreneurship.

According to Anushka Daunt, assistant professor of business administration, this collaborative effort offers immense value to W&L students. Not only do they learn how to develop projects in theory but also get the opportunity to present their work professionally, simulating a real business setting.

The Creative Showcase will feature an impressive range of innovations, from new applications that streamline social media usage, cutting-edge medical devices, consumable goods for daily use, and engaging board games. These projects are interdisciplinary, with contributions from various academic departments, highlighting the diverse talents of W&L students.

This event is an excellent opportunity for members of the community to witness firsthand how Washington and Lee University’s students are applying theoretical knowledge in practical ways while gaining valuable entrepreneurial skills through collaboration and innovation.
