PENTA CEO joins faculty at Clark University
WORCESTER _ PENTA Communications, Inc. CEO, Deborah Penta, recently joined the faculty at Clark University in Worcester as an Adjunct Professor in the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Department. Penta is teaching Communication and Influence and is also serving as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the University.
Clark University’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship program helps prepare students for life after college. It is a cross-curriculum undergraduate minor open to all students from science to performing arts, and from education to engineering.
“We are very excited that this talented, well-respected, local practitioner has joined the Clark University Innovation & Entrepreneurship program. Her expertise and commitment to the Worcester community will truly inspire Clark students,” said Amy A. Whitney, associate director, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program at Clark University
The program was founded on the principal that innovators come in all shapes and sizes. Some of these innovators start and run their own businesses, while others enter classrooms, science labs or boardrooms and shape the future. The program helps students realize their passion and it helps provide both the theory and fundamental real world skills needed to be successful as an entrepreneur.
“There is nothing more rewarding in business than the opportunity to share knowledge and help the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs on their journey of discovery,” said Deborah Penta, CEO of PENTA Communications, Inc. “It has been a lifelong goal of mine to teach, and I’m grateful to have this opportunity at Clark where the students are globally-diverse, socially-minded and are deeply committed to shaping a better world environmentally, socially and economically.”
