The Long Island Capital Alliance is partnering with NYIT on an educational and mentoring series for entrepreneurs, with a first session scheduled for April 5.
Called “Growing Your Business from the Ground Up,” the event is set for 5 to 8 p.m. at NYIT’s de Seversky Mansion on the Old Westbury campus.
The program will include how-to information on forming a business entity, setting up human resources and accounting systems, intellectual property protection, financing options and sales, marketing and communications strategies.
“The program was designed to track the way an entrepreneur should leverage best practices to build a company from the ground up,” said attorney and LICA chairman Neil M. Kaufman. “We have pulled together a highly experienced panel of speakers who will share with local entrepreneurs their vast knowledge of the most critical areas to business growth.”
In addition to Kaufman, panelists include Dawn Davidson Drantch of Alcott HR, Eric Altstadter of EisnerAmper, Corey Massella of Katz Sapper & Miller and George Likourezos of Carter DeLuca Farrell & Schmidt. Jeff Bass of Executive Strategies Group, Mark Elenowitz of TriPoint Global Equities/Banq and serial entrepreneur Michael Lane will also present.
Nada Marie Anid, dean of the university’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, called the collaboration “a natural extension of our mission to foster innovation and expand industry-academic partnerships by leveraging NYIT’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Technology Center.”
The event is $15 for LICA members and NYIT faculty and students, or $25 for the unaligned. Dinner and beverages will be served.
Additional events in the series are planned for LaunchPad Huntington.
