Is the university system the most effective path for cultivating startup communities?

In what ways is it ideal, and in what ways it is insufficient?

We've seen a rise in alternative education options, such as skills-based training, workshops, MOOCs, immersive programs, and so forth. Are these options poised to challenge the university status quo, or do they have another destiny?

There are those who would challenge the entire formalized education system altogether, given the availability of information, the success of many entrepreneurs who opted not to complete their degrees, and the rising costs of tuition. When is it really okay to "drop out"?

In this panel, we’re going to cover these questions and possibly more, time permitting.

Who should attend?
Great for anyone interested in a critical discussion on the role of higher education in cultivating a thriving business community.
