The event, organized in conjunction with the college’s Club Web, was attended by more than 80 students and featured a panel of local business owners and experts. CITD Youth Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) Coordinator, Gabriel Reyes, kicked off the panel discussion with an overview of YEP and its online business training, after which each panel member provided a brief introduction and discussed their experiences as entrepreneurs. Event participants had the opportunity to ask questions to the panel as a whole or approach each panel member individually after the initial discussion.

The aim of the event was to provide students interested in starting their own business with information on entrepreneurship resources, as well as guidance and advice on navigating the pitfalls associated with running your own business and making it successful.
