Event Description: 

Making a change to pursue your dream, turn an idea into a business, and go for it is scary. How have others taken the leap? Hear from a live panel of Cornellians who made the career transition to entrepreneurship. Learn about where they started, their practical and personal processes, and where they are now.

Join us for a networking reception, panel discussion with audience Q&A, and CEN’s trademark “Open Mic,” where YOU can give your 30-second elevator pitch. What better way to start your entrepreneurial journey?!
