Hopkinsville Community College was the site of the recent 2018 Regional Entrepreneur Conference,a free event for community members looking for information on how to start or better run their own business.
“We had around 120 people register this year,” said Loretta Daniel, Director, Kentucky Innovation Network. “We try to design our content that will be beneficial to new business owners and bring in speakers who will be beneficial to people who have just started or are about to start a business. The program is also beneficial to those who have been in business for years, but they want to learn some new tricks in the digital age.”
The morning session ended with a presentation by Google’s Dave Delaney entitled Tips for Measuring Online Success. This year’s keynote speaker was Andy Pilgrim, a professional race car driver and owner of a small computer consulting company he started in 1989.
“Dave Delaney is helping our participants better understand how they may take advantage of all of the free tools that Google offers,” Daniel said. “I’m also really looking forward to Andy Pilgrim’s presentation – A Life Journey to Opportunity.
“This is our 7th year of the conference. Attendance is always good. We hope people will continue to attend our annual conference to receive this valuable information.”
