Progressive Lunch

Held Friday, Nov. 22, 2013. University Center Club, Futch Ballroom 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Banner Progressive Lunch

A student event, The Jim Moran Institute for Global Entrepreneurship was pleased to host Entrepreneurship Month (eMonth) during the month of November at Florida State University. Designed to foster a culture of entrepreneurship across campus, eMonth celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit and provides our students with an introduction to the world of entrepreneurship.

Every year we host the Progressive Lunch: an event where entrepreneurs share their firsthand knowledge and experience with our entrepreneurship students through intimate table discussions over lunch. The format of the luncheon encourages students to engage in stimulating conversations with entrepreneurs. This year, the students will remain at a single table throughout the luncheon, and the guest entrepreneurs will move to a new table at the start of each course. This experiential learning opportunity allows students to ask questions and learn from others' real-world experiences.

Additionally, students who attended were entered into a drawing to win a $200 Bill’s Bookstore gift card. Congratulations to Jesse Henry, winner of the drawing held at the close of the event.

This year's Keynote speaker was Mr. Doug Tatum, newest Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Florida State University, Chairman of the Board at Newport Board Group, and Vice Chairman of Association for Corporate Growth. (See Bio)
