In her final semester as a business major, Jade Trinh was uninspired by the obvious career paths open to her. In her 2011 BIF Talk, Trinh recounts her story of stumbling into an entrepreneurship course that revealed an unexpected and exciting new path. She argues that students crave the kinds of real-world, experiential learning environments she was fortunate enough to encounter and urges that experiences like hers should not be the exception, but the rule.

From this he learned that if you are able to create in abundance and fail, you can learn why you fail and that's when innovation happens.
