The road to entrepreneurial success is rarely easy. Ask any entrepreneur and they can tell you the tiresome, persistent process that has kept them awake at night. After all, starting a business from scratch is one of the scariest things in the world. But with the right plans, resources, and mindset, it can also be the most rewardingsometimes we just need to hear some inspiration.

 Join our panel of successful Husky entrepreneurs to learn how they built their success and the lessons learned along the way. In this session, pause from worrying about all the things that could go wrong and focus on the things that could go right. One day, your name could land in the list of winning entrepreneurial stories.


This event is graciously supported by the Cavanaugh Family Alumni Career Services Fund.
