Dr. Leslie Broudo Mitts, former head of The Wharton School’s high-growth
entrepreneurship practicum, will address the question of what’s really new
about new venture creation. For example – who are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs,
and how will they be different than today’s? What are the key trends in culture
and society most likely to be at the foundation of new venture creation, including
in the areas of wearables and artificial intelligence? What will be the implications
– and challenges – for collaboration and the formation of new groups globally?
Dr. Mitts is most recently CEO of a research-centric early-stage fund investing in
education and education technology. Prior to her teaching and leading the high-growth
practice of Wharton Entrepreneurship, Dr. Mitts led M&A for Fortune 50 companies
competing in the information technology industry. Dr. Mitts earned her MBA at The
Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and her Ph.D. in Anthropology
also at the University of Pennsylvania.
