The Center for Entrepreneurship will host an “Entrepreneurship Fiesta” from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Feb. 23 in the Entrepreneurial Lab, located in the Business Administration Building, during National Entrepreneurship Week.

At the event, students will have the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, how to get involved with the center and upcoming competitions and events.

Additionally, the program will be hosting a Business Concepts Competition, where students can submit ideas for businesses by March 3. Finalists will be announced March 9, and presentations for the finalists will be held March 16.

Students interested in either of these events can visit for more information.

Craig Zamary, a professor in the entrepreneurship program, said students in the program have the opportunity to formulate ideas and launch their own businesses.

“Every single one of the companies they launched last year, as well as in this class, have made money,” Zamary said. “That’s the best way to learn when it comes to entrepreneurship is going out there and doing it.”
