Kent State Dedicates New Entrepreneurial Lab

Good news for those who want to create jobs and create a new business! Last Friday, Kent State University dedicated the new Entrepreneurial Lab in the Business building on the Kent Campus. Julie Messing, who serves as the director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and Business Innovation says:

The lab provides students with a place to be inspired to achieve excellence, including all of the “bells and whistles” for stimulating minds. The technology available in the space is top rate, with students having access to all of the necessary tools to make business happen.

I think that this is another powerful tool for growth of Northeast Ohio. Read more here: Kent State Dedicates John S. Brinzo Entrepreneurial Lab

More local entrepreneurship news:

  • Tonight I am a guest speaker at University of Akron as a Professor for a Day in their entrepreneurship class called "New Venture Creation." My topic: A Story of Entrepreneurship: How I Started and Grew a Full Service Marketing Agency During Tough Economic Times.
  • Tomorrow I speak to 38 business professionals at the Twinsburg Chamber of Commerce about "Three Branding Secrets Every Business Owner MUST Embrace"
  • Next week on Monday I am planning to attend the Founders' Cafe where business entrepreneurs brainstorm ways of building and growing new business and on Tuesday the Entrepreneurs for Sustainability program in Cleveland. I enjoy just being part of that group and learning from others about what keeps a business growing.
  • During November I will present "Seize the Market" at the Akron Urban League for entrepreneurs and business owners.
