College holds Entrepreneurship Speaker Series

This semester’s Entrepreneurship Speaker Series panel discussion will be on Monday, April 4, 2011, at 1:00 p.m. in room 5 of the Luerssen Building. The panel will include Connie Faylor, Regional Manager of the Berks County Ben Franklin Technology Partners, whose mission is to promote, sustain, and invest in the transformation of northeastern Pennsylvania’s economy through innovation and partnering.

In addition, the panel will include the team of Business students who earned first place honors in the inaugural Penn State Smeal College of Business case competition, which was held February 3-5, 2011 at Penn State University Park Campus, as well as their advising faculty member.

The Penn State Berks team was comprised of seniors Laura Hayes from Gilbertsville, and Cory Varona from West Lawn; and juniors Tyler Sweigart from Denver, and Janessa Weaver from Ephrata. The students traveled with Ron Jastrzebski, Lecturer in Accounting at Penn State Berks, to University Park campus to compete in a round-the-clock competition.

Each semester, the Engineering Entrepreneurship program, whose mission is to provide an interdisciplinary minor that fosters entrepreneurial creativity and leadership throughout Penn State Berks and its service area, hosts a Speaker Series, featuring panel discussions and invited guests.
