The Office of Alumni Development presents a monthly webinar series offered FREE to all alumni and students. Each episode is designed to provide insight and advice on how to succeed both personally and professionally.
The internet has changed the course of entrepreneurship. It is not only a platform for businesses to be built on but also a whole new way for owners to engage with their customers. Every business owner must recognize the impact the internet plays on their opportunity. Whether this involves selling to customers directly via the internet, using it to build a brand, or leveraging existing platforms to engage customers, there is a place for the internet in almost any business.
We will discuss current trends around the adoption of the internet and dive into the impact mobile devices have had on entrepreneurship. Businesses can build a presence beyond the brick and mortar storefront using social networks and by partnering with existing platforms like Square, Grubhub, or Etsy. For those willing to put in a bit of work there are easy ways to build your own website and get started learning how to code. Whatever the case may be, this webinar will leave you with a better understanding of how you can leverage the power of the internet to accelerate your growth as an entrepreneur.
