Berkeley Haas Gives Crash Course to "America's Greatest Makers"

America's Greatest Makers

The next reality TV celebrity may not be a desperate housewife or a wannabe chef, but an aspiring entrepreneur with an idea that could be the next big thing in Internet-enabled gadgetry—thanks to a little help from Haas instructors.

The contestants got a crash course in business fundamentals from Andre Marquis, Executive Director of the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship, and a moderator at this year's Alumni Conference.
