Michael Goldberg leads new institute to connect and speed innovation on and off campus
Last January, Michael Goldberg became the inaugural executive director of Case Western Reserve’s Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship. He came to the post steeped in academic and business experience. An associate professor of design and innovation at the Weatherhead School of Management, Goldberg also created a massive open online course (MOOC) about entrepreneurship outside of Silicon Valley. It has drawn 175,000 students worldwide in six years—and in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak was relaunched and updated. Goldberg also has turned his MOOC into a book.
An indispensable connector and trusted adviser to undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and alumni, Goldberg shared his aims for the Veale Institute.
