LaunchNET Celebrates with Awards & Expo

Breakfast and networking with community members and KSU entrepreneurs

The university and local community are invited to join LaunchNET as we celebrate the success of Kent State entrepreneurs!

Over 1,200 students, faculty/staff and alumni from across the university have participated in the NEOLaunchNET program at Kent State University. Many of these innovators and entrepreneurs have created business models, prototypes, and in some cases, businesses that they will share at the expo.

This breakfast 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. Sharlene was recently named the University's Presidential Ambassador for 2016 and the SBA 2016 Small Business Person of the Year for the Cleveland district.

Join us for breakfast, recognition of support and sponsors, as well as end of the year entrepreneur awards.
