Looking for some business advice, Winston-Salem? We’ve got you covered. Wake Forest University’s Face to Face Speaker Forum, sponsored by the Allegacy Center for Leadership and Character, will host Daymond John on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at Wait Chapel. Known for his insightful commentary on “Shark Tank” and his entrepreneurial spirit, John will share his insights with a lucky audience.

The event is an extension of Winston-Salem’s entrepreneurial spirit, which is alive and kicking. The Wake Forest Center for Entrepreneurship frequently leads the way with events like Entrepalooza, an annual event for entrepreneurs to pitch their biz ideas. Bonus: Wake Forest’s Center for Private Business continues to be a powerful catalyst for local business growth and development.

One of the best-known examples of entrepreneurship to come out of WFU in recent years is Storage Scholars, an idea from two WFU students who were ultimately backed by Mark Cuban from ABC’s “Shark Tank.” Want to hear more from one of Cuban’s Shark colleagues? Hear from John and see how an idea could turn into a business. Remember: No idea is too small. Grab tickets.
