Entrepreneurial Workshops

Oklahoma NSF EPSCoR

Young entrepreneurs, college students and faculty advisors gain a better understanding of the critical steps involved in starting a business at the annual Who Wants to be an Entrepreneur Workshop.

The interactive workshop is open to all college-level entrepreneurs, students, and faculty members. Participants learn the key elements involved in starting a business, including how to write a business plan, what investors are looking for in an entrepreneur, how to successfully present a plan to investors, and local resources for start-up, technology-based businesses.

Attendees have the opportunity to network and dine with community leaders, investors, entrepreneurs, and economic development experts throughout the day.

Participants also learn about the “Governor’s Cup,” Oklahoma’s annual statewide collegiate business plan competition, and hear ways to improve the odds of winning $250,000 in cash awards, scholarships and fellowships.

Top Oklahoma business professionals, entrepreneurs, service providers and investors will share their experiences and knowledge of the commercialization process.

Who Wants to be an Entrepreneur is an annual event sponsored by i2E, Inc., the Oklahoma Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), and others.

The workshop is free and lunch is provided. However, registration is required. For information about upcoming workshops visit the i2E events page.
