Washington and Lee University’s First Creative Showcase: Bridging Academic Theory with Entrepreneurial Practice

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

The Connolly Center for Entrepreneurship at Washington and Lee University is hosting its first Creative Showcase on April 4 from 5-8 p.m. This 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.

Students have worked in groups to develop their own business concepts and products to present at the Creative Showcase, allowing them to gain experience in navigating the real-world dynamics of entrepreneurship. According to Anushka Daunt, assistant professor of business administration, this collaborative effort is invaluable for W&L students as it bridges academic theory with entrepreneurial practice. Students not only 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 a variety of innovations ranging from new applications to 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.
