Speaker Series

The Faber Entrepreneurship Center, in conjunction with the McNair Institute for Entrepreneurism and Free Enterprise and the Entrepreneurship & Innovation Living Learning Community, presents a new speaker series bringing in a wide array of fascinating entrepreneurs and business builders. Entrepreneurs will be interviewed in front of a live student audience on the details of how they started their business--we dive into the successes and challenges of starting, running and growing a business. More than the typical success story, we expose the audience to the hidden struggles behind the public triumphs. A Q&A session will follow each interview.


  • All students are invited
  • Food and drink provided
  • Held in Sonoco Pavilion, Moore School
  • Times is 6:30-8 p.m. for each speaker
