LTC to host free seminars on entrepreneurship
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI –
Lakeshore Technical College will host a series of free evening seminars this fall for inventors, entrepreneurs, students, business owners, and anyone interested in starting a business.
The Lakeshore Entrepreneurs and Inventors Network presents, “Pitch, Protect and Promote Your New Business Concept,” a series designed to educate and empower the entrepreneurial spirit. Three seminars, Sept. 19, Oct. 17 and Nov. 21, will feature speakers who will show participants how to adapt and prosper in a world of constant change.
Registration is not necessary, and all seminars are free. All meetings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. in LTC’s Cleveland Training Room.
“Delivering an Effective Elevator Pitch” on Sept. 19 will be led by Jeff Leismer, founder and CTO of Vibe Tech, Inc.; and Kurt Waldhuetter, regional director of the Wisconsin Entrepreneurs Network.
Do you have an idea for a business or invented a new product? Do you need to reinvigorate an existing business? How you “pitch” your ideas to others so they quickly understand your business is critical in our fast-paced and short-attention-span world. Leismer will share the story of how he launched Vibe Tech and talk about strategies to bring a new invention to the market. Waldhuetter will discuss resources that are available to help formulate and deliver an effective elevator pitch.
“Intellectual Property: Real-Life Considerations for Entrepreneurs and Inventors” on Oct. 17 will be led by Joseph Heino and Patrick Bergin, attorneys with the Davis & Kuelthau law firm.
Learn how to identify and protect the intangible assets of your business. When starting or expanding a business, it is important for entrepreneurs and inventors to consider what aspects of intellectual property they should protect. Heino and Bergin will present real-life examples that illustrate the four general areas of intellectual property: patents, trademarks, copyright and trade secrets.
“Promoting and Marketing for Sales Success” on Nov. 21 will be led by Mike Reisenauer, LTC marketing instructor.
You have the pitch and know how to protect your business concept; now it’s time to put some strategies together to start selling. Learn the difference between promoting and marketing, and explore options that are available no matter what your budget.
