Ilitch School, Google partner to host entrepreneurship conference
Grow with Google is sponsoring a one-day training conference for entrepreneurs and those looking to own or grow a business at the Mike Ilitch School of Business. The 2019 Entrepreneur and Small Business Conference: Power Up Your Business will take place on Oct. 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will allow attendees to receive networking opportunities, digital marketing training and breakout sessions. Mike Ilitch School of Business Associate Dean for Strategy and Planning Bertie Greer said one of the conference’s benefits is networking. “The keynote speaker is Paul Glantz and (he) also sits on our Board of Visitors. So, we have a wonderful relationship with Paul, and it’s an opportunity to meet very successful, gritty entrepreneurs who have built their businesses from the bottom up,” Greer said. Glantz also sits on the advisory board for the Bell Entrepreneurship Learning Laboratory.
