The Skyhawk Venture Development Workshop Series is coming to UT Martin on October 6th. This is series of free workshops that will provide a platform for gaining a more comprehensive understanding of how to create a sustainable, growing and scalable business.

 

Over the span of six weeks, participants will learn from the real-life experiences of successful entrepreneurs: How to identity the true purpose of a business; the value of knowing the competition; and how to view a business through the eyes of potential investors. From an experienced intellectual property law attorney, participants will receive valuable information about how to identify and protect intellectual property.

 

All residents of northwest Tennessee and southwest Kentucky who are interested in learning how to be a more successful entrepreneur are encouraged to attend the workshops to receive valuable tips and critical information on how to build a viable business. All sessions are FREE.

 

“These workshops were developed to help students and people in the community to understand more about entrepreneurship. An impressive collection of speakers are scheduled for these sessions. An informal networking session will begin each session and a question and answer session will follow the presentation “said Tommy Cates, the Tom E. Hendrix Chair of Excellence in Free Enterprise at University of Tennessee at Martin.

 

“I am excited about this joint venture of NTEC, the Northwest Tennessee Angel Fund, the University of Tennessee at Martin College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences and the University of Tennessee at Martin College of Business and Global Affairs. Our mission is to help create and foster high-quality business ventures that will benefit our rural communities’ economic development” said Carol Reed, Executive Director of the Northwest Tennessee Entrepreneur Center.

 

Skyhawk Entrepreneurial Vision Workshops begin on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 6 p.m. concluding at 7:45 and continue each Thursday for six weeks until Thursday, November 10, 2016. The workshops are being held at the University of Tennessee at Martin College of Business & Global Affairs Building, Room 33.
