Entrepreneurial Collaboration: multiple perspectives and one replicable research pathb

  1. 1. Entrepreneurial Collaboration: Multiple Perspectives and One Replicable Research Path (Construction Site) Tatiana Pashkova-Balkenhol and Elizabeth Kocevar-Weidinger. (October 17, 2014). Take Risks, Embrace Change: The 2014 Conference for Entrepreneurial Librarians. Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC.
  2. 2. 7 traits of successful entrepreneurs  Tenacity  Passion  Tolerance of ambiguity  Vision  Self confidence  Flexibility  Rule breaking Robinson, Joe. (2014, January 10). The 7 Traits of Successful Entrepreneurs. Entrepreneur Magazine, n. page.
  3. 3. Passion: “Most will tell you they are fueled by a passion for their product or service, by the opportunity to solve a problem and make life easier, better, cheaper.”  Student Learning  Faculty Collaboration  Information Retrieval
  4. 4. Rule Breaking: “…defy conventional wisdom. …combination of "smarts" and "aggressive, illicit, risk-taking activities" …often shows up in youth as rebellious behavior, such as pot-smoking.” (and building tall buildings!)  Librarians led a semester-long pedagogical collaboration with: Faculty Students Database vendor
  5. 5. Tenacity: “This trait is known by many names--perseverance, persistence, determination, commitment, resilience— but it's really just old-fashioned stick-to-it-iveness.”  Participants: 5 elementary, 6 middle/junior, 5 high, and 6 university students  Tasks: find encyclopedia articles, magazine articles, and images. Use database functions, such as sharing, saving, and citing results.
  6. 6. Tolerance of Ambiguity: “This classic trait is the definition of risk-taking--the ability to withstand the fear of uncertainty and potential failure.” 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% Information Encyclopedia Image/Picture Magazine Article Find Features Comparison % Start with facet % Start with search % Within mouse range % Correct path % Both correct path & mouse range
  7. 7. Vision: “One of the defining traits of entrepreneurship is the ability to spot an opportunity and imagine something where others haven't.”
  8. 8. Flexibility: Business survival, like that of the species, depends on adaptation. Your final product or service likely won't look anything like what you started with.
  9. 9. Self-confidence: It's a belief that turns the risk proposition around-- you've conducted enough research and have enough confidence that you can get the job done that you ameliorate the risk.  “The library is the intellectual crossroads of the community—a house of stories preserving our memory and fostering communication and collaboration. Librarians can lead collaborations that will keep that community alive and vibrant.”
