Pathways to Entrepreneurship: Families, Foodies and Hospitality

April 11, 2019 @ 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm EDT

Event Image

The Pillsbury Institute and Smith Family Business Initiative are teaming up to host a panel during Entrepreneurship at Cornell’s annual Celebration event here at SHA. The role of family in nurturing and developing entrepreneurs is often misunderstood; 77% of all new business ventures established in the United States are founded with significant involvement of the family in the business, and another 33% engage family members within the next two years. For some, the family provides the resources and environment to launch their ideas, for others, a separate pathway is necessary. Recent alums and current students share their entrepreneurial ventures in a lively and informative panel. We hope to see you there!
