1st Entrepreneur Speaker Series Event of the Year

Recently, we held the first Entrepreneur Speaker Series event of the 2020/21 academic year. Mike Panesis, Executive Director of our Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, welcomed Cara Armstrong, founder ofBaby Barista, who shared her fascinating and inspiring journey with students and community members. Her entrepreneurial journey began in 2011 at a tiny kitchen in the middle of the night while struggling to feed her infant daughter.
