About Midwest Entrepreneurs


Midwest Entrepreneurs is a marketplace-based seminar style experience for students interested in learning about entrepreneurship from actual practicing entrepreneurs; 20-25 guest speakers per semester. Students comparatively analyze various aspects of a diverse array of businesses and demonstrate an understanding of how entrepreneurs effectively integrate marketing, management, and finance in order to create and continually enhance value for customers, shareholders, employees, and other stakeholders. We strive to have as wide a diversity of perspectives as possible; in terms, for example, of industry, lifecycle stage of business, and level of entrepreneurial experience.
