Be Your Own Boss Workshop

Be Your Own Boss Workshop

Friday, September 22, 2023

Presented by the UTRGV Center for Innovation and Commercialization

Do you ever dream about being your own boss? Have you ever had a business idea but didn’t know what to do next? If you are an aspiring business owner or are interested in starting a side-hustle, then Be Your Own Boss is right for you!

The Be Your Own Boss workshop is an event where students from across all UTRGV disciplines who want to be their own boss one day – start a business or open a practice in their field of study – can learn what it takes to make that happen.

This workshop will give you a hands-on experience where you work with a team to come up with an idea, design a business around that idea, and pitch it to others. This is a unique opportunity to network with and even work with other students (who could even become your future business partners or collaborators!), enter a giveaway to win exciting prizes, and engage with a panel of experts from a variety of fields who have started their own businesses in the Rio Grande Valley.

Apply today to ensure your spot!

Application Deadline: Monday, September 18th at 11:59pm.

This program is free, but you must apply to get in. Be Your Own Boss is open to undergraduate and graduate students of all years, majors, and experience levels. You will be notified of your application status by Wednesday, September 20, 2023, by 5:00 PM CST.
