Discovering Entrepreneurship with GSU Clarkston

Public Event
Friday, February 24, 2017 9:00 AM
555 N Indian Creek Dr Clarkston, GA 30021

Join FEE and The Institute for Humane Studies at Georgia State University, Clarkston Campus, for our free, 1-day event in Clarkston, GA as we explore the power of entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship is ultimately the driving force towards a better future for all of us. Yet, it's often neglected in the social sciences, and even in economics. Whether you currently have a business, are considering starting one, or just seeking to develop a deeper understanding of entrepreneurship, this event is for you!

Students will have the opportunity to learn from entrepreneurs, exchange ideas with diverse business leaders, make life-long connections with like-minded peers, and hopefully gain new inspiration in the process.

This event is designed for college students, but all are welcome. It's also free for all registrants and lunch will be provided. Register today!
