2016 LaunchNET Kent State Expo and Awards Takes Place April 12
LaunchNET Kent State invites the university community to celebrate the success of Kent State University entrepreneurs at its Expo and Awards ceremony on April 12 from 7:30-11 a.m. at the Kent Student Center Ballroom.
More than 1,200 students, faculty, staff and alumni from across the university have participated in the NEOLaunchNET program at Kent State. Many of these innovators and entrepreneurs have created business models, prototypes, and in some cases, businesses that guests will be able to learn about at the expo.
This breakfast event will include awards and recognition of Kent State entrepreneurs, as well as a keynote presentation by Sharlene Chesnes, CEO of InterChez Companies, LaunchNET Kent State board member and Kent State alumna. Chesnes was recently named Kent State’s President’s Ambassador for 2016 and the SBA 2016 Small Business Person of the Year for the Cleveland district.
