The CEI is very excited about the success of our first annual “Invitation to Innovation” Entrepreneurship Expo last week! There was an excellent turnout. The day started with a very heartfelt speech from Assistant Director, Kelly Penwell, followed by the first event of the day, The Entrepreneur Village.

The event continued on with a series of professional interactive lectures. Some of our wonderful keynote speakers included Anthony Durden, Michael Botticello, and Margaret Brooks. All of our speakers shared entrepreneurial advice and delivered inspirational stories of their own successes. We ended with a phenomenal white board session which included the Peer Power Foundation.
