This summer, Skandalaris Center student interns will again host Summer Friday panel discussions on topics related to starting, building, and sustaining new ventures. This week’s topic is “Sports Entrepreneurship” and will include the following panelists:
- Carla Rose, Kansas City Sluggers, a traveling showcase baseball organization for 15-18 year old young men
- Stephane McCormick, Backyard Lifeguards, a full-service aquatic safety company serving private pools and their owner families, and water-based sporting events
- Khalia Collier, St. Louis Surge, a semi-professional woman’s basketball team that entertains spectators and provides players the opportunity to meet with recruiters and scouts
Carla and Stephane are both hosting Skandalaris interns this summer. The interns hosting the discussion are Daniel Feinberg, a junior in Arts & Sciences interning at Intact Genomics; Kristine Yang, a junior in Olin Business School interning at VelociData, Inc.; and Samuel Jong, a sophomore at Olin interning at Gorilla 76 .
Join us for the panel discussion and the opportunity to ask for help on your idea or project, then we will host a reception for all to connect and help each other. We will offer FREE PARKING for our Summer Fridays, but registration is required at ideabounce.com so we can send you directions and a parking pass. Unlike previous summers, our Friday discussions will NOT be in Simon Hall which is undergoing renovation this summer, so please register to find details of the location and to receive a parking pass.
Next up on June 13: Educational Entrepreneurship. See the full schedule of Summer Friday topics at ideabounce.com.
Also please save the date for our Summer IdeaBounce® scheduled for Thursday, July 17. The deadline to post your idea to be invited to pitch at that event is Monday, July 14.
