School of Business Hosting Entrepreneurship Week
Meredith College’s School of Business is holding Entrepreneurship Week February 22-26, 2010. The schedule of events is focused on helping an individual open his or her own business.
What is it like to own your own business?
A panel of women business owners will talk about the rewards and challenges of owning your own business. Pamela Clark, chef and owner of The Thyme Savor, and Susan Weems, Director of Venture Management, Inc. will be here to answer all of your questions.
How to finance a new business
Loan officers from RBC and BB&T are coming to talk about what the banks look for when evaluating requests for new business loans. This is a rare opportunity to learn how successful business owners overcome their greatest challenge – where is the money coming from?
How does a small business grow into a multi-million dollar enterprise?
Temple Sloan, Jr. founder and owner of CarQuest, will be giving an interactive lecture, answering questions submitted by students about owning and running a successful business. A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Harris Building, and the lecture will begin at 6 p.m. Seating is limited.
