“We brought the Virtual Speaker Series into our Intro to Small Business Management class. We have lots of great local entrepreneurs in Las Vegas, but we chose to bring in the Virtual Speaker Series because the speakers are young and can really relate to the students. The professor loved bringing in real entrepreneurs into the classroom. I loved building a relationship with the professor and promoting our upcoming business plan competition. The students were engaged the whole presentation and asked lots of great questions.”
