Our story opens with Miss Appleseed...Miss Appleseed is a new student at the ESEA. She must travel through the new innovator's roadmap to be successful in the ESEA program and to be able to give back to the program.
Miss Appleseed starts her journey in the learning stage where she starts learning in the university where she starts learning new innovative methods to come up with ideas for her first startup. The learning is done through the university, through knowledge of being an entrepreneur. She transforms into an entrepreneur through the teachings of other entrepreneurs
Miss Appleseed journeys next is to the thinking stage (stage 2). This stage is the Catalyst Stage. At this stage she participates in business plan competitions, industry mentorships.
At the Doing Stage is where Miss Appleseed puts all that she has learned together in an actual startup project supported by the knowledge and relationships she has gained through the beginning of this journey.
This is not the end of our story nor is it the end of Miss Appleseeds journey, but the beginning. She now is charged with helping the next student entrepreneurs. We call this the "Giving Back" stage. Here she will help by teaching new students and investing in their startups.
