Second Successful Entrepreneurship Lecture Series Announced

Upstate business leaders have announced the second Successful Entrepreneurship Series to take place on Greenville Technical College’s campus beginning in January. The three-month lecture series will build off of momentum gained from the fall series that culminated with a presentation by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

The series’ 15-week curriculum aims to inspire innovation and encourage individuals to develop ventures that benefit the community. Classes will be taught by real world entrepreneurs eager to share their personal stories and expertise. Speakers include TV personalities Richard Davis from “Flip That House” and Jane Robelot of CBS, nationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Edwin McCain and COO of Greenville Business Magazine Lori Coon. Topics to be discussed include marketing, social media, financial and accounting basics, human resources, leadership and international business.

Leighton Cubbage, chairman of Serrus Capital Partners, said, “The first Successful Entrepreneurship series was a huge success, and we want to continue making an impact with local entrepreneurs, giving them any and all available tools to help their businesses succeed. We’ve put together a tremendous line-up of speakers for this series, and I look forward to meeting our next class of entrepreneurs.”

The program will meet weekly beginning January 7th until April 22nd.  Registration is limited to 75, and participants in the free lecture series must attend 13 of the 15 sessions to receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the program. For more information or to register visit
