Event Description

The keynote event will end Penn State Startup Week, a weeklong series of workshops, talks, and pitch competitions that encapsulate the theme of overcoming perceived barriers to startup success — such as not knowing how to run a company or believing that an idea already exists — and offer encouragement on how to simply get started. After a networking reception for attendees to meet with keynote speakers, Jerome Griffith, the CEO and president of Lands’ End, will begin his keynote at 12 p.m. There will also be panels of entrepreneurs discussing what they "wish they knew before starting their business." More information can be found at startupweek.psu.edu. All events are free and open to the public.
