Ready, set, start your business! Each year, entrepreneurs from around the region are invited to participate in the highly interactive Entrepreneurship Institute workshop. During the three-day program students learn about building a business plan, raising capital and running a successful company. Local entrepreneurs are our speakers who share their own stories about what it’s like to start up a company and be successful in life.
On the final day, attendees present or “pitch” their business idea to a panel of judges. Entrepreneurship Institute Participants from the last three years went on to win the annual Business Plan Competition.
The 2015 Speaker include:
Led by Professor Jeffrey Babin, from Antiphony and Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, he taught fundamental concepts of idea generation, market assessment and how to develop and implement a business plan.
