Jim Flowers Will Serve as Executive Discussion Series Panelist

From the Cox Business Executive Discussion Series:

THE NEW AGE OF ENTREPRENEURS: Starting up small business in 2011

What better time to launch your own business than when the economy tanks and jobs become scarce? Business startups reached their highest level in 14 years in 2009, during the height of the recession, according to the Kauffman Foundation. But wanting to start a small business isn't just about having a great idea, especially when start-up capital is scarce. Join our panelists for a discussion about the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship in the wake of the Great Recession.

Jim Flowers, Executive Director of VT KnowledgeWorks, will join panelists David Catalano, Terry O'Shaughnessy, Wayne E. Flippen and Laura Godfrey.
