Some of the leading businesspeople in the community will share their expertise as part of a three-month lecture series hosted by Serrus Capital Partners. The series will feature weekly presentations from thought leaders from finance, marketing, education, retail and other sectors. They will discuss topics such as financing, operations, business plans and buying property. The program will “rely on grassroots-based curriculum to inspire innovation and encourage individuals to develop ventures that benefit the local community,” the company said in a statement.
The series is a follow-up to last year’s Ecoplosion summit held at CU-ICAR, which focused on entrepreneurship, real estate and economic development.
Leighton Cubbage, a partner at Serrus Capital Partners, said in the release, “the Successful Entrepreneur Series aims to gather the top thinkers in the Upstate, drawing on their expertise and wisdom to share insights with up-and-coming entrepreneurs. This is a tremendous learning opportunity for all involved, and I’m confident that this will become a growth engine for the Upstate community.”
Speakers include Cubbage, Matt Dunbar of Upstate Carolina Angel Network and Reuben Montalvo of Señor Wraps Restaurant Group.
The program will meet weekly beginning on Aug. 27 and will run until Dec. 15. Registration is free and limited to 75 people. Participants in the series will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program. For more information and to register, visit successful-entrepreneurship.com.
