"Entrepreneurship on Long Island: The Road to Success"
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Hofstra University Club, David S. Mack Hall, North Campus
The success of small business is crucial to the recovery of the U.S. economy in the next few years. Businesses with fewer than 500 employees traditionally make up more than half of new jobs created, and are the first to begin hiring after a recession. Long Island has had a great record in spawning entrepreneurs over the course of history. This business roundtable will examine the factors that have led to success of entrepreneurship in Long Island. The four speakers will provide their unique perspective on their road to success and share thoughts on the factors that enabled them to achieve a winning strategy. They will also comment on current issues that will impact future generations of entrepreneurs.
Time: 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
