Celebration of Austin's Entrepreneurs November 10, 2015 #GEW2015

Thank you for Celebrating Austin's Entrepreneurs!

Lonny Stern of Outspoken Enterprises and Cindy Lo of Red Velvet Special Events. Visit our Facebook page for more event photos.

More than 60 entrepreneurs and community leaders joined us last night to celebrate Austin's entrepreneurs. Guests enjoyed libations from Austin's own Sourced Craft Cocktails and delicacies from Central Market. Perhaps you had a chance to meet some of the inspiring entrepreneurs who will be speaking to high school students during Global Entrepreneurship Week like the founders of Azarmehr Law Group, Beacon, Branch Basics, Dorado, Feed Magnet, Juice Homes, Magnificent Marketing, NuturMe, Unbill, Urban Animal, Wandering River Recycling and Yard Bar.
While JA students are twice as likely to become entrepreneurs as the general student population, many of them will chose other paths. We believe teaching students to own their success, pursue their passion and work hard to achieve success as they define it empowers all students to find meaning and fulfillment in whatever career path they choose.

We are matching entrepreneurs with speaking opportunities through Friday, November 13, 2015. To register as a speaker, please sign up here. To learn how you can support JA Entrepreneurship Month or JA's weekly K-12 programs in our community, please call our office at 512.710.5437.
