In partnership with Zane Venture Fund, Georgia State University’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Institute (ENI) is pleased to announce an entrepreneurship and innovation summit that will take place on October 19. Early-stage investors in companies founded by diverse entrepreneurs and students from across the state are invited to participate and hear from speakers during the one-day event.
The first part of the summit will feature a showcase of Georgia State’s award-winning Main Street Entrepreneurs Seed Fund (MSESF) business accelerator program, which supports historically excluded students, recent alumni, and Georgia State community entrepreneurs with seed funding and mentorship from starting and growing new ventures. This event allows participating entrepreneurs to pitch their companies to investors, compete for awards, and network with potential funders. The second part of the day’s summit will feature events and activities focused on educating students and community members on venture capital and entrepreneurship.
Day two is Zane Innovation Day which will feature a hackathon, keynote and featured speakers, breakout sessions on venture capital and entrepreneurship, a company showcase, and networking.
