Program Objectives

  1. To provide college and high school students an opportunity to engage in a conversation with established and aspiring local entrepreneurs in an informal and relaxed environment where they can find a source of inspiration and learn about the steps and challenges involved in turning ideas into actions.
  2. To provide a venue for established and aspiring local entrepreneurs to present their ideas and receive real time feedback on how to start, expand, or improve their entrepreneurial activities.
  3. To connect educators, experts, and other members of the Mid-Ohio Valley community with local entrepreneurs and students in order to exchange ideas on how to build a bridge between theory and practice and turn challenges into opportunities.

Program Format

In an hour long session two current or aspiring entrepreneurs give a short (5–10 minute) “pitch” presentation pertaining to specific opportunities or challenges they are facing and receive real time feedback from their assigned discussants as well as the entire group.
