Watch the Entrepreneurs Lecture Series

November 15, 2012

Approximately 250 students, faculty, business leaders, and community members gathered for the Entrepreneurs Lecture Series (ELS) at the McKimmon Center Monday afternoon.  Hosted by NC State’s Entrepreneurship Initiative, the ELS proudly kicked off Triangle Entrepreneurship Week 2012.

Attendees were treated to a distinguished panel of entrepreneurial leaders who shared their personal stories, advice, and philosophies regarding entrepreneurship.

Prepared remarks were followed by an interactive question and answer period from the audience with Dr. Tom Miller, Executive Director of the Entrepreneurship Initiative, serving as moderator.  The semi-annual event is made possible by a grant from Andy and Jane Albright.
