Events include presentations from startup founders and corporate innovators, idea development workshops and mentoring sessions, and an entrepreneurial resource fair.

Business of the 21st Century
Speaker Patrick Maser, ACN Senior Vice President
201 Sheetz Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence
Patrick Maser was exposed to network marketing by his parents who ran successful home-based businesses. As an adult, he chose a more traditional path of higher education followed by entry into the workforce. While having big dreams, at the end of the day Patrick realized he was busy making a living, not a life. So he began searching for his greater purpose. He eventually teamed up with his brother to build an ACN business and has been showing people globally how to take control of their financial future.
