Penn State has transformed into a destination for entrepreneurs, with both Invent Penn State and Happy Valley LaunchBox launching in the past five years. Three Penn State culinary entrepreneurs — including one who doubles as the Idea Catalyst at Happy Valley LaunchBox — will share stories and perspective, along with how they’ve overcome challenges faced by most people wishing to create a company. Learn about their personal experiences and strategies, including ways that you can apply their principles to your own business efforts.

Registration is encouraged for this event. To register, please click here.

Hosted in partnership with the Penn State Alumni Association.
