Prince Entrepreneurship Program Continues Spring Seminar Series
Stetson’s School of Business Administration announced the continuation of Entrepreneurship Thursdays, a seminar series featuring nationally recognized speakers, pitch competitions and startup advice. All events are free and open to the public; however, seating is limited.
All events are held at 6 p.m. in Rinker Auditorium in the Lynn Business Center at 345 N. Woodland Blvd., DeLand.
Kristi Myers, a Daytona Beach resident and registered nurse, identified a way to help prevent the spread of healthcare acquired infections, researched and wrote a patent, and is now in the process of commercializing the device. She is slated to share her story on Thursday, Feb. 7.
On Thursday, Feb. 14, Alex Szinegh will explain an HR tool that helps employers efficiently assess candidates. He will discuss best HR hiring practices and demonstrate how to use the HR tool.
Sean Donovan will speak to the young entrepreneurs on March 14. As a self-proclaimed, “authorprenuer,” Donovan will share how he turned his experience writing, editing, publishing and selling books into a successful business.
Just a few weeks later, on March 28, Randy Ware, a Stetson alumnus and Clearwater resident, will explain how he achieved entrepreneurial success by founding a company that buys and sells surplus surgical supplies around the world. His company, WestCMR, cuts expenses for hospitals and keeps metal and plastics out of landfills.
As the seminar series comes to a close on April 11, Gino Santos, a member of the advisory board for the Prince Entrepreneurship Program, will discuss his endeavor as founder of Premium Blend, Inc., an innovative wine-based liquor substitute.
The series was created to promote engagement and creative thinking.
