Alex Maritz presents the argument that entrepreneurs need grit, and EE has a major role to play in its development. Bringing a wealth of corporate and entrepreneurial experience to EE, Maritz operates at the intersection of current ideas and his students’ immediate futures. At this place, theory for theory’s sake will not suffice. Maritz describes a range of learning processes that correspond to several types of grit to build a strong argument for the essential nature of one’s grit in the process of learning by doing. Beyond developing his arguments, Maritz pragmatically acknowledges the challenges to developing grit, both in terms of student perceptions and institutional norms.
