Getting From Here to There Panel (NYC)

News Story

Are you an entrepreneur? Want to hear from experts in the biz about how they made it big? Join the eLab for a panel discussion on Thursday, November 15, for some serious #inspo.

It can be difficult visualizing the endgame when you’re still on that daily grind. But that’s what Pace’s Entrepreneurship Lab (eLab) is for: creating an environment for innovative, business-savvy individuals where you can collab and hear from other experts in the field. This time? You’ll be hearing how they made it big.

The panel will be moderated by Professor Bruce Bachenheimer, executive director of the eLab. Food and beverages will be served!

Thursday, November 15, 2018
5:30 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
