Learning about entrepreneurship "showed me the power you have if you can think in an entrepreneurial way," 2020 grad and Agribusiness Management major Laura Greaves said in May for "Entrepreneurial Wisdom for Grads," a conversation shared on Facebook Live!

Be relentless, advised former Penn State and pro basketball player Tyler Smith for "Get Back in the Game!" a conversation in June.

"I don't want to be left behind," said Dr. Sarah Owusu, who co-founded a non-profit to improve STEM education in Africa. That and the mission of the non-profit keep her going.

Entrepreneurship & Innovation at the College of Ag Sciences will share these and many more inspirational highlights Aug. 26, 12 - 1 p.m.

We'll jump into one-on-one networking chats in this special event for Penn State College of Ag Sciences students, grad students, researchers and alumni.
For a conversation from May, "Entrepreneurial Wisdom for 2020 Grads" we asked 2020 graduates to tell us how they have kept moving forward — and tapped the entrepreneurial wisdom of alumni.
