My guest for Episode 023 of the Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons show is Cece Gassner.
Cece Gassner is the Director of economic development for the Division of Research and Economic Development at Boise State University.
Cece talks with Kathryn on this interview about the importance of innovation. We speak specifically about three cutting-edge programs at Boise State University, 1) the College of Innovation and Design, 2) HBX, in collaboration with Harvard Business School, and 3) The Lean Launch program for entrepreneurs.
You just might get inspired to head over to the Makers Lab at the College of Innovation and Design and get your creative juices flowing.
Here is the website we mention during the interview.
