The Gabelli School of Business fifth annual Entrepreneurship Conference, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 6, features some of New York City’s leading entrepreneurs and venture capitalists sharing their stories with Fordham students.
New features for 2016 include breakout sessions. One will be a roundtable on what it’s like to work at a startup, led by several employees of top local ventures.
Other speakers will be Tony Shure, a co-founder of Chopt Salad; David Goldberg, a principle investor at Corigin Ventures; and Maria Melendez, founder of Embrace Her Legacy, who will speak about building a social business.
The conference is designed to expose students to non-corporate career options, said Christine Janssen, director of Fordham’s entrepreneurship program.
“There’s a lot going on and there’s tons of opportunity,” Janssen said of the business climate. This is a chance to hear about the entrepreneurial experience and its challenges.
“The stories,” she said, “are really good.”
