FROM STAFF REPORTS
Aspiring entrepreneurs and current business owners seeking to re-energize can participate in the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour coming to Daytona State College on Nov. 13.
The national touring event will take place from 9 to 11:30 a.m. in the Mori Hosseini Center on the college’s Daytona Beach campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd.
Sponsored by Daytona State’s L. Gale Lemerand Center for Entrepreneurship and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour features top young local and national entrepreneurs who share their insights on how they turned their passions into successful enterprises.
A ‘success seminar’
“I like to call this a ‘success seminar,’ where we show people how to explore what they really love to do, pursue their dreams and be successful,” said Ned Harper, director of the SBDC at Daytona State.
“It reflects the goals Gale Lemerand aspired to when he established the entrepreneurial center at the college. He wants to inspire students and let them know that if they have a dream, they can be successful if they follow it.”
The Extreme Tour invites attendees to plan, prioritize and pursue their vision.
In addition to guest speakers, the multi-platform forum will feature interactive workshops focusing on how individuals can match their passion to future opportunities, start their own business or take their current business to the next level.
Prizes and scholarships also will be awarded.
While admission to the event is free and open to the public, participants are encouraged to register at www.extremetour.org/daytonastate.
