Entrepreneurs Unplugged is a meeting place where faculty, students and community members with technical backgrounds learn about and get involved in entrepreneurship. In particular, the program offers students and faculty an opportunity to learn how a successful start up is created as well as an opportunity to network. Each Entrepreneurs Unplugged meeting features food, drink and – most importantly – an experienced entrepreneur to discuss his/her start-up experiences.
The Deming Center Women’s Council is pleased to co-sponsor this Unplugged Session. The Women’s Council’s provides access and connections for students to successful women business leaders. It aims to nourish both students and other women in our community to live up to their potential as entrepreneurs and leaders in business.
