Have you ever had an idea for a new product or service and wanted to know what to do next to transform your idea into a reality? “Entrepreneurial Adventure” on June 10, 2016 from 9 a.m. — 3 p.m. at the Philip H. Ryan Health Science Center, located at 1 Denslow Road, East Longmeadow, MA, will give you tips and tools to bring those ideas to life.

Studies show that women business owners are among the happiest professionals in America. According to the 2013 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) U.S. Report, established female entrepreneurs ranked their well-being more than twice as high as  non-business owners. “Entrepreneurial Adventure” brings highly successful entrepreneurs to motivate attendees to actualize their business goals, helping them to join the likes of those happy female business leaders. This daylong interactive event will explore the journeys women take as they seek to solve today’s problems through innovative business concepts.

Speakers include Kim Miles, entrepreneur and expert in networking for women, who will teach attendees how to "get past hello" and work a room "the Kim Miles way" in her highly entertaining and interactive session; Holly Hurd, Venture Mom author and entrepreneur, who will share what she has learned about moms who launch new ventures from the comfort of their home; and Bay Path Professor Stephen Brand, who will facilitate an engaging, fast-paced and skills-building game where participants will work in teams to design new businesses. Their tips and strategies for maximizing individual strengths and managing risks will give participants an edge for success as future business leaders and innovators.

The cost to attend “Entrepreneurial Adventure” is $95 per person and includes lunch.
