Grinspoon Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards

The Grinspoon Entrepreneurship Initiative recognizes students who demonstrate "entrepreneurial spirit" with monetary awards. Spirit Awards acknowledge a student's actions to date and encourages them to move forward in pursuit of their entrepreneurial dreams. To be considered for an award, a Smith College student must first be nominated by Professor Eitan Mendelowitz and WFI Associate Director Liz Roberts. The HGCF EI Advisory Committee makes the final decision regarding award recipients. Awardees and nominees are required to participate in the Entrepreneur Exhibit during the cocktail hour at the Spring Banquet.
