Thankful Entrepreneurs in Delaware

In honor of GEW and in spirit of the upcoming holidays, the University of Delaware’s Horn Program in Entrepreneurship asked young entrepreneurs what they are thankful for. The program also invites the UD community to respond to the question, “What are you thankful for?” by sharing on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #ThankfulTrep.

Ben Rapkin, president of the Entrepreneurship Club, said he is thankful for the dedicated, passionate and supportive community of entrepreneurs at the University. The success of great entrepreneurs is dependent on the unique type of community they come from.

Greg Starr said he, like many young entrepreneurs, is thankful for having mentors. Without mentorship, the success of entrepreneurial businesses would not be possible. Mentors act as a support system for these ambitious individuals and provide guidance through their entrepreneurial endeavors. Finding that one vital person to act as a mentor can make all the difference.

In addition to social media trending in support of GEW, the state of Delaware has also hosted the Global Startup Battle Delaware and a 1 Million Cups event.
