President Thomas V. Chema just passed along some exciting news to the Hiram community:
Greetings to students, faculty and staff,
Our Hiram students are real entrepreneurs! I just left Baldwin-Wallace where our five students presented their unique idea for a business and won the Entrepreneurship Education Consortium contest.
Hiram students Dan Fakhoury ‘13, Adam Miller ‘13, Sydney Vore ‘11, Nicole Spencer ‘11 and Kara Vantaggi ’12 did a terrific job. In fact, the judges told them their idea was great and encouraged them to take their business concept to the next level. As the winning team, they will receive a package of cash and gifts, as well as resources to help make their idea a reality.
Our students spent this week networking with area entrepreneurs and meeting students from Baldwin-Wallace, Kent State University, John Carroll University, Case Western Reserve University, The University of Akron, Ashland University and Lake Erie College. This was all part of “Entrepreneurship Immersion Week,” put on by the EEC.
Congratulations to all,
