ASU Professor Aram Chavez and Aha to Exit

Debra Hildebrand

In Episode 6 of The Lurnist Show, Debra talked with Professor Aram Chávez of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University.  Among other things, they discussed teaching and mentoring entrepreneurship curriculum in universities.
 
 Professor Chavez frees students from the traditional constructs of uniformity with lateral thinking through entrepreneurial road mapping—teaching interdisciplinary courses with an atlas called Aha To Exit. His current focus is to teach hundreds of students annually; and, mentor dozens within ASU. He teaches the only process for innovators to become enterprisers. To that end, he recently co-authored a generative map with a temporal view of how to teach innovators to become entrepreneurs.
 
 Professor Chavez has earned the Highest Rated Professor at ASU (State Press, 2015) and the Faculty Teaching Excellence Award for his innovative work with students at ASU. He was also featured in the Phoenix Business Journal as "20 People to Know in Startups".

Professor Chavez spent some time discussing how entrepreneurship should be taught in the engineering schools as they are the innovators.  He also discussed the gaps in how entrepreneurship is taught in universities and how he is filling that gap with a standardized “map” for startups with his company, Aha to Exit. 

If you are an educator in entrepreneurship, or an innovator, you need to listen to this episode as it gives insight into how Professor Chavez has revolutionized and standardized the way entrepreneurship is taught.
