Traditional institutions, such as universities, face the challenge of utilizing modern collaborative media and social networking platforms to instill a greater sense of community within their vast community of entrepreneurial students and professionals. When used effectively, social media can stoke the flames of entrepreneurial interactivity outside of the university's classrooms and meeting centers and make resources available beyond the traditional walls of the institution. The Dexter F. Baker Institute for Entrepreneurship at Lehigh University has created iDex to crowd-source support for young entrepreneurs and to engage the greater Lehigh network to provide students with direct feedback and advice on their innovations and venture creation ideas. By taking the effort online, the institute demonstrates its initiative to maintain a standard for entrepreneurial education that reflects modern entrepreneurial thinking and activity.
