Entrepreneur Express Series set for Sept. 17
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Space Coast Tech Council will present its next Entrepreneur Express Series on September 17 where two excellent speakers will share their personal success stories, while focusing on two specific areas of the entrepreneurial development stages – Going Operational and Knowing When to Expand.
The Entrepreneur Express brings together local business experts and budding technology entrepreneurs.
These experts have successfully started and managed businesses and know how to launch and move a company through its various phases of development.
Going Operational will be the topic of District 2 Brevard County Commissioner Jim Barfield’s presentation as he shares the experience of winning a huge government contract, and having to quickly create a staff and resources to meet its demands and deliverables.
It’s always the dream of every budding entrepreneur to land a big contract, or to access large venture capital resources.
Creating the organization that will get the job done is not always an easy task.
Barfield will share how he and his partners created and developed Luke & Associates, Inc. into a multi-million dollar company with a diverse range of capabilities, providing services for the U.S. Government and commercial entities.
