For Immediate Release


Entrepreneurship Speaker's Forum Feb. 25


In celebration of National Entrepreneurship Week, Catawba Valley Community College’s Business Department and the Catawba Valley Emerging Entrepreneurship Club are sponsoring a speaker’s forum on “Promoting Entrepreneurship in Our Community,” Fri., Feb. 25, at 10:30 a.m. in the Auditorium.


Guest panelists include Tony Wolfe, president and CEO of Peoples Bank; Houston Harris, president of PixelSpace; Michael Neely of Blind Squirrel Digital; Michael Shoup, founder and former CEO of Wheelchairs Plus; and Dr. Garrett Hinshaw, president of CVCC.


Startup companies are continuously cited as our economy’s most promising source of new jobs. In fact, a recent Kauffman Foundation study dispels the myth that the jobs created with business startups fail within five years.


Sponsored by CVCC, the Catawba Valley Emerging Entrepreneurship Club seeks ways to introduce members to individuals who have started their own businesses. Students participate in various activities that provide real-world exposure to the day-to-day operations of American businesses.


The public is invited to attend. There is no charge; however, seating is limited.
