SCCE-23 Panel & Fast Pitch – Event this Saturday at CSUF Titan Student Union

While entrepreneurs are sometimes called the “engine” of the economy and investors are called the “wheels” of the economy, what about all the individuals and firms that provide sage advice and services to facilitate and help navigate the business landscape for entrepreneurs – might they be the “transmission”? Take a “ride” in this panel discussion session with those experts that provide critical business structure, tax, legal, financial, operational, marketing, and other advice to move entrepreneurs all the way from pre-formation through exit.

Moderated by George W. Wright, Dean of Concordia University Irvine School of Business and Economics
