Both Dianne Apter and Cynthia O’Connor enjoyed presenting to graduate students at Syracuse University. The students were hoping to become future entrepreneurs. Cynthia spoke to the class of Dr. John Torrens, Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurial Practice at the Whitman School of Management. Dianne addressed a graduate student program entitled: How Can You Become an Entrepreneur? Using Your Graduate Education to Start a Business or Non-Profit. Lively discussion and questions followed the presentations and both were very well received. The Associate Director of Graduate Student Career Services, Dr. Rosanne Ecker noted, “I think everyone will remember your declaration of, ‘Passion, professionalism and pragmatism’ as the mantra of starting a small business”.
