All the CEO Ladies

Kent State ladies taking charge of their businesses

All the CEO Ladies is a partnership between LaunchNET Kent State and the Kent State Women's Resource Center. It is a group of female-identifying business owners and potential entrepreneurs who meet regularly throughout the semester to learn, support one another, find mentors and partners, hear speakers, and get answers to issues. 

The group meets once a month at the Women's Center, evenings from 5:30-7pm. 

In October 2017, two groups of local high schools students came to Kent State University to participate in an entrepreneurial workshop designed to increase the students’ awareness and knowledge of the venture formation process, hosted by LaunchNET.

On Monday, October 23, sixteen sophomore and junior-level students from Junior Leadership Hudson (Western Reserve Academy and Hudson High School) visited campus, and on Wednesday, October 25, sixteen junior and senior-level students from Chagrin Falls High School participated.

“Don’t put any idea off as a joke,” said Richard “Hart” Main, a Kent State University sophomore economics major from New Philadelphia, Ohio. “I almost did that and missed an opportunity.”

The 18-year-old entrepreneur, from Kent State's College of Business Administration, is referring to ManCans, his company that makes and sells masculine-scented candles with a philanthropic twist.

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

On Wednesday, March 16, 2016, six Kent State student teams competed in the third annual LaunchNET Idea Olympics in the University Library. The event is a lead-in to the regional ideaLabs business idea competition, sponsored by the Northeast Ohio Entrepreneurship Education Consortium (EEC). Eleven colleges and universities will compete in the 7th annual event, which will be hosted this year at John Carroll University.
