BizStarts Milwaukee and Alverno College team up to bring Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour to Milwaukee

Oct. 11, 2012

The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour, a one-of-a-kind national tour designed to inspire college students to start their own business, is coming to Milwaukee. BizStarts Milwaukee and Alverno College teamed up to bring the high-energy event to town. The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour, which is free and open to all southeastern Wisconsin college students, will be held Friday, October 19 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Alverno College Commons.

“There’s no better way to inspire entrepreneurial students than to introduce them to people who have made a success of it while they were still in their 20s. The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour brings them here,” said Eric Paulsen, Executive Director of BizStarts. “We wanted to bring this tour to Milwaukee to provide more access, networking, and inspiration for students thinking about starting their own company – and to encourage them to move in that path. They’re our future wealth and job creators.”

The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour, the first and only nationwide entrepreneurship tour, features interactive panels, workshops and networking. Keynote speakers, all of whom have achieved success in their 20s, will share their secrets with students who attend. The tour aims to motivate young adults and give them the tools they need to successfully start their own businesses.

"Alverno College has a long-standing reputation for community connections and sharing with other academic institutions,” said Dan Matre, assistant professor of Business at Alverno College. “We look forward to hosting the ‘Extreme Entrepreneur Tour’ and welcoming hundreds of college students from southeastern Wisconsin who want to learn more about pursuing their ideas that may spark new businesses."

Space is limited, and students interested in attending must pre-register at www.extremetour.org.
