Sparking the ingenuity of budding Midstate entrepreneurs was the goal of the Global Entrepreneurship Week celebration at Middle Tennessee State University. The Nov. 15-22 event featured a series of guest speakers who came to campus to share expertise on topics ranging from how to glean commercial ideas from research to pursuing entrepreneurship following a corporate career.
Hosted by the Jones College of Business and the Tennessee Small Business Development Center, all activities are free and open to the public. The event is being held in conjunction with the annual Global Entrepreneurship Week, an international celebration of innovators and job creators held each November.
Featured speakers at the kickoff included a Q-and-A panel, “Resources for Entrepreneurs in Middle Tennessee,” featuring Leroy Cunningham, business development specialist, MTSU-Tennessee Small Business Development Center; Dr. Jim Stefansic, Launch TN; Jack Sisk, Southern Middle Tennessee Entrepreneur Center; and Mary Sedrick, Women’s Business Center at Brightbridge.
