Workshops Attract 250 Participants

IMG_96791Throughout the 2014-2015 academic year, the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center held Startup Advising Workshops three times each month, attracting a total of 250 participants. Startup 101 and Marketing for Startups were held each month, and the third workshop rotated monthly with topics such as Legal Basics, Money Basics, HR: Building Your Team and Sales Basics.

We would like to thank everyone who made these workshops a success in continuing to help in providing DePaul students, faculty, and alumni, as well as the broader Chicago business community with real-world guidance in starting or growing a business. We greatly appreciate our more than 250 workshop attendees through the academic year. A very special thank you to our workshop speakers: Terri Lonier, Mandy Terc, Eugene Freghetto, Cynthia Williams, LaShon Anthony, Mason Cole, Lori Igleski, Bob Achettu, Kristen Lampert, Mason Cole, Katherine Kim, Al Kutchins, Charlie Drehmer, and Lamont Black.

We are delighted to announce that Startup Advising Workshops will begin again in the Fall Quarter of the 2015-2016 academic year. In consideration of the many suggested topics for our next set of workshops, we will focus on new themes such as Social Media, Networking, and VC Basics.
