The college is inviting forward thinking individuals of all disciplines to attend and learn how they can apply the entrepreneurial mind-set to their lives regardless of career choice.
During the event, students will be inspired to write down their goals and the steps they need to take to achieve them, their website stated.
The day's events will be moderated by , “America's Top Young Speaker.” He will be joined by Lauren Berger and Raj Lahoti.
Berger's company, Intern Queen, provides internship consulting services and an intern-themed clothing line, Internal EthiKs. She picked up the award for “Best Young Entrepreneur of the Year” at the 2007-2008 Stevie Awards in Las Vegas in 2009.
