TAMPA, FL. (October 24th, 2017) - Community business leader and entrepreneur Alfred Goldberg will be a key speaker at this year’s Veteran’s Entrepreneurship Training Symposium (VETS) hosted by the Hillsborough Community College Ybor campus. The symposium is part of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation program and is presented by USAA to give Veteran-owned small businesses the knowledge and tools to grow their businesses.
Goldberg will be mentoring participants on a variety of business challenges and how to overcome them, how to leverage opportunities to further business goals, and more, in a fun-filled day of learning, networking and empowerment. The event takes place Saturday, November 4th from 8:30 am-4 pm.
“Veterans have given so much to this great country,” says Mr. Goldberg. “It gives me the greatest pleasure to provide guidance and marketing advice to help them take their startups or existing businesses to the next level.”
“Now in its 5th year, VETS provides Veterans, active duty service members, their spouses, and civilian business partners with an opportunity to engage in a day of impactful learning, networking and collaboration,” says Dr. Andrew Gold, Assistant Professor, Entrepreneurship & Management, Hillsborough Community College & Co-Founder of Operation Startup and e2Venture.
“Alfred has been a huge part of this program’s success by lending his voice and professional expertise to help serve those that have served our nation,” says Dr. Gold.
Goldberg has extensive experience mentoring and consulting businesses on digital strategies across dozens of industries from restaurant and hospitality, manufacturing and technology, to reputation management, to mobile marketing and more. As Chairman of the Tampa Bay WaVE, Goldberg is deeply involved with the local startup community and provides insights to those involved in their accelerator programs.
“Because of our dedicated network of community partners, we have been able to collectively grow this event, impact the lives of hundreds of past and present military service members, and transform our community by establishing Tampa Bay as a national leader for Vetrepreneurship,” says Dr. Gold.
Presented by USAA, the workshop is free and open to all veterans, active duty service members, and their spouses. The symposium concludes with a Business Pitch Competition, where participants pitch their business concepts for $10,000.00 in cash prizes. Entrants’ pitches will be judged based on their uniqueness, feasibility and the ability to impact people and society.
