Last week our founders, Frances Ford and Debra Livingston, spent an afternoon on the campus of The University of Tampa speaking with Entrepreneurship students. Frances and Deb were invited to the College of Business by Professor, Dr. Rustogi, to address his”Introduction to Entrepreneurship” class at the University.

The course, targeted towards aspiring entrepreneurs, provides an overview of important business start-up considerations such as legal structure, planning, and risk analysis, and requires students to develop a feasibility study for a new business venture.

Deb and Frances shared their business start-up story, explained to students the challenges and joys associated with building a successful business, provided advice, and fielded questions from the class.

Debra had this to say about the speaking engagement, “The experience was so much fun! It was energizing to speak to such an enthusiastic and motivated group of students. Several of them had already started their own business and they were all very eager to ask us questions about our background as entrepreneurs. We enjoyed recounting our company’s history, our important milestones, and sharing our vision of the future.”
