Entrepreneurship Kickoff Event

Guest speaker Deborah McWhinney

Have you ever had a great idea for a product or service that you’d like to pursue? Are you passionate about a social or environmental issue that isn't being addressed adequately?  Do you want to launch a new service that doesn't currently exist?  If you are curious about these possibilities, RSVP for the kickoff event by Sept. 23. 
Guest speaker Deborah Doyle McWhinney is a senior executive and champion of financial services innovations.  She has been named one of “The 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking” by American Banker, “The Top 50 Women in Wealth” by Wealth Manager, and the 2013 Top Innovator of the Year by Bank Technology News.

For those who are interested, the kickoff event is tied to a semester-long program in which you will:

  • be paired with inspiring women entrepreneurs as mentors
  • receive guidance and support from UM’s Blackstone Launchpad
  • hear from and interact with amazingly talented people
  • encouragement to be as creative as you want
  • earn one credit
