Our graduate course in Nutrition and Entrepreneurship is taught by Jimmy Edgerton. Jimmy is a Jumbo who graduated from Tufts with a BS in Civil Engineering, Dual Major in Economics, and received a Minor in Engineering Management. He teaches Food & Entrepreneurship (NUTR 280) at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition, co-teaches in an advisory/mentorship role for Master of Science in Innovation & Management students in New Product Innovation (EM221), and oversees special projects where current students are leading diverse teams rapidly crafting ideas towards revenue generation. He espouses three pillars of entrepreneurship; (1) Partnership- success does not happen in isolation; (2) Value- find repeat customers in your niche’s niche and understand market conditions; and (3) Why- “It’s not what you do, it’s why you do it”.
