Webinar Explores Characteristics of Successful Entrepreneurs

Eli Mercer teaches entrepreneurship courses for both University Extension (UEX) and the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin. In this webinar, he explores some of the characteristics of successful entrepreneurs.

What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur?

Like many artists, leaders and visionaries throughout history, entrepreneurs are often misunderstood. Some entrepreneurs have become legendary, larger-than-life personas in the public eye, with the pathways to their success romanticized and obscured by myth.

In this webinar, we will explore:

  • Why people choose to pursue innovative business ventures.
  • What it really takes to be a successful entrepreneur.
  • Real-life challenges faced by early-stage entrepreneurs.

Eli Mercer teaches BA 320F - Foundations of Entrepreneurship for University Extension and the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin.

A recording of the webinar is viewable on the UEX YouTube channel.
