College of Business Hosts Entrepreneur Day for Montana High School Students
The College of Business will host the 8th annual Entrepreneur Day on Wednesday, October 26. This event is sponsored in part by Boeing and will take place on the Montana State University campus in the Strand Union Building.
Entrepreneur Day is geared towards high school students across the state interested in entrepreneurship and the field of business. During their visit, the students participate in an interactive workshop where they work together to come up with unique entrepreneurial endeavors. They then pitch these ideas to a panel of current MSU entrepreneur program students as a part of the day’s events.
The event will end with a keynote presentation by Ian Davis, co-owner of Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures. The presentation is open to the public and will take place in the Procrastinator Theater starting at 1:15 pm.
Davis will give a brief overview of his business and what services they offer at Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures. He believes that having a passion for your job is critical to the success of any entrepreneurial endeavor. He will also discuss running a small business in Montana, especially one in the travel and fly fishing industries and how that affects his business strategy. Davis will delve into how to maintain a high level of business during challenging times through various strategic measures, including social media. A short Q & A will follow.
Each session is designed to be motivating and educational. This is also a great opportunity for high school students to learn more about business and entrepreneurship through hands on activities and meeting with entrepreneurs and current MSU business students and faculty.
