Global Entrepreneurship Week Nov. 15-21

The Department of Business Communication and Entrepreneurship and Wright Travel Chair in Entrepreneurship in the Jennings A. Jones College of Business in conjunction with the College of Mass Communication, Department of Recording Industry, and the MTSU School of Music will celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week from November 15 – 19, 2010.


MTSU Global Entrepreneurship Week has a number of outstanding events planned for the week. On the fin├íle day, Nov. 19, nationally syndicated columnist Deroy Murdock will speak on Obama vs. Free Enterprise. Murdock's columns appear in the New York Post, Boston Herald, Washington Times, National Review, Orange County Register, and many other newspapers and magazines in the U.S. and abroad. His political commentary has aired on ABC's Nightline, NBC Nightly News, CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, PBS, other television news channels, and numerous radio outlets. 

Also speaking at Friday’s event will be Sheilah Griggs, vice president of Point 3 Media and executive director of Ladies Who Launch. Griggs has a diverse real-world background in public relations, media relations, and marketing. Leading the Nashville chapter of Ladies Who Launch, Sheilah gives her heart to inspire entrepreneurship and creativity as a lifestyle. While Sheilah is a sought-after motivational speaker, the Point 3 office is consistently the backdrop for workshops providing essential resources for women to take their project to the next level. 

Other events include local and national speakers as well as a viewing of the film Ten9Eight, which will be shown in the Keathley University Center. Ten9Eight is a thought-provoking film that tells the inspirational stories of several inner-city teens (of differing races, religions, and ethnicities), from Harlem to Compton and all points in between, as they compete in an annual business plan competition run by the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). 

Events will be held in the Business and Aerospace Building and Keathley University Center. The public is invited to attend. Off-campus visitors may obtain a campus map and parking pass at the Linebaugh Public Library, 2nd Floor Reference Department, 105 W. Vine Street, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. For further information call the BCEN Department at 615.898.2902.
