Startup Essentials Episode II
September 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Startup Essentials are the Garage’s very own version of TED Talks. We’ll bring in speakers from around the community to lend their expertise to the cause, but of course the Garage doesn’t stop there! Our Startup Essentials guests will typically join our team for staff office hours which means they’ll be on hand to answer any questions you might have. This is an incredible opportunity to take advantage of and we hope to see you join us for the entire VI episode series!
Episode II’s speaker is Professor Lewis Sheats who will be speaking on opportunity analysis!
Sheats is an entrepreneur and educator. He has identified and developed several unique new ventures from launch to profitability, and has raised venture funding and bootstrapped several ventures from concept to exit.
Sheats is an assistant vice provost for entrepreneurship and serves as the executive director of the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic, an initiative which exposes students to experiential learning, embeds them in the entrepreneurship community and provides the resources needed to execute their own ideas. As a faculty member of the NC State Poole College of Management he is devoted to preparing the next generation of entrepreneurs.
Sheats is an award-winning educator who was recently named an Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor by the NC State Alumni Association and the 2015 Dr. John S. Risley Entrepreneur of the Year.
