The Center for Entrepreneurship’s fourth annual Entrepreneurship Week was a huge success, attracting more than 1,000 participants over five days. This year’s event featured several educational workshops and seminars on a variety of topics, including how-to sessions on creating a business plan, marketing plan, social media tools, Adobe Photoshop and more.

“As an accounting faculty member of the Craig School of Business, I am proud to have the opportunity to share my knowledge, help ideas succeed, and to learn from new and experienced entrepreneurs. It is a tremendous benefit to me and our students to have this valuable event right here at Missouri Western” said Professor Parry Adkins. 

Entrepreneurs of all ages attended and learned from the week-long event. Area high school students participated in the MECA Challenge, working in teams to solve real-world business challenges. Missouri Western students had the opportunity to meet with Steven L. Craig and Peter Ueberroth for a question-and-answer session.

The week concluded with the Capstone Luncheon featuring guest speaker Peter Ueberroth. Ueberroth, a successful businessman and entrepreneur, is best known for serving as the President and CEO of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee and was a key player in organizing the 1984 Olympic Games, as well as serving as the sixth commissioner of Major League Baseball.

“Thank you so very VERY much for getting me involved with the Entrepreneur Week at Missouri Western. I was truly overwhelmed and inspired by the luncheon guests and speaker as well. I look forward to working with you, getting more involved and growing my business,” commented one participant.  

Mark your calendars for next year’s Entrepreneurship Week, scheduled for March 23-27, 2020.
