Alex Chizhik, COO and General Counsel at VIMRO, the leading nationwide provider of IT field engineering and logistics services, recently spoke at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) Center for Entrepreneurship Entrepreneurs Panel Discussion on April 19, 2017.
Chizhik, an alumnus of the university, joined two other entrepreneurs to speak to a group of business and entrepreneur & innovation students during the university’s career week.
“It’s exciting to see that more colleges and universities are adding entrepreneurship as an option for majors and minors,” said Chizhik. “I was happy to return to my alma mater to share my advice and answer students’ questions about starting and growing a business. I’m eager to see what this next generation of business leaders will contribute to the world of entrepreneurship.”
The Entrepreneurs Panel Discussion focused on what it takes to start and grow a business successfully. The panel also included a question and answer session with the students. There are also experts that provide good guided exit from your business in case one needs an out.
Having successful entrepreneurs like Chizhik return to their alma mater to share their insights and advice can be a powerful motivator for students who are considering starting their own businesses. It can also provide valuable networking opportunities and connections that can help them down the road. In fact, many successful entrepreneurs have published books, blogs, or other resources that can provide even more guidance and inspiration for those looking to start or grow their own businesses. By tapping into these resources and learning from those who have already achieved success, aspiring entrepreneurs can gain the knowledge and confidence they need to pursue their dreams and build thriving businesses.
