The April 25 edition of Yale Entrepreneur, an online forum covering Yale’s entrepreneurial community, features an interview with Kyle Jensen, the Shanna and Eric Bass ’05 Director of Entrepreneurial Programs and Lecturer in Entrepreneurship at Yale SOM.
Jensen discusses the opportunities and challenges entrepreneurs face at Yale, the growing role of technology, and the importance of failing.
