McNeese to Host Millennials and Business Seminar

(November 9, 2016) What will it take for millennials to become successful entrepreneurs? Nov. 14-20 is Global Entrepreneurship Week and the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at McNeese State University is hosting a Millennials and Business event that will offer valuable information to these young adults.

The free program will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the Willis Noland Conference Room on the second floor of the McNeese SEED Center and is sponsored by IberiaBank.

The event - part of the world-wide celebration of entrepreneurship - will feature discussions of the importance of credit, practical steps to entrepreneurship and the guidance available from the LSBDC at McNeese.

Speakers from McNeese will talk about courses and programs that can help millennials blend their studies with entrepreneurship and succeed in the world of business, while a  business owner who is a millennial will give some insight into what he’s learned about entrepreneurship and running a small business.

Technology will let individuals participate through viewing the Facebook Live and Twitter feeds from the program and questions, concerns and comments will be shared through live interaction with the speakers, according to Donna Little, director of the LSBDC at McNeese.

“Using technology is an integral part of a millennial’s life so it is very appropriate that the LSBDC will share the experience using Facebook and Twitter,” said Little. “We will have live social media feed for this event -  #SWLAMILLS.
