David Lambe, agronomy and horticulture associate professor of practice, has been selected for the inaugural University of Nebraska–Lincoln Entrepreneurship Fellowship program.
The fellowship program was created in response to the entrepreneurship-related activities happening across the university. The program allows students to easily access available classes, co-curricular and extra-curricular events relevant to entrepreneurship.
“It is a group of people across campus that get together once a month to discuss programming, and ways to make entrepreneurship on campus more accessible to students and people outside campus,” Lambe said. “We’ve also been given some space at Nebraska Innovation Campus to use for programming and for student groups.
Lambe instructs Entrepreneurship 488/888 Business Management for Agricultural Enterprises. The ACE 10 class is a business-plan writing course focused on student business ideas. Students learn to write business plans, network with professionals and compose a set of financial statements projecting their costs and income over a five-year period. Students then pitch their ideas to bankers and investors, and present their plans to business professionals in the classroom.
He has the class compete in either a business-plan competition or business-pitch competition, hosted by the College of Business Center for Entrepreneurship or the Engler Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program.
Lambe also teaches Entrepreneurship 275 Entrepreneurial Finance and Entrepreneurship 388 Agribusiness Entrepreneurship.
