Launch your business with the IDEA Center and the American Entrepreneurship Award
The American Entrepreneurship Award (AEA) is a new annual award program and business plan competition that seeks to stimulate entrepreneurial spirit through practical support and up to $25,000 in start-up funding for America’s most promising early-stage businesses.
Join the Libra Group and The IDEA Center at Miami Dade College for the Miami-Dade County launch of the AEA on Thursday, February 4th to learn more about the program and hear from keynote speaker and AEA celebrity judge Daymond John about being an entrepreneur the “Shark Tank Way.”
An entrepreneur in every sense of the word, Daymond John has come a long way from his $40 budget by growing FUBU into a six-billion-dollar brand. The Founder of FUBU, Presidential Ambassador of Global Entrepreneurship, and co-star of ABC's Shark Tank is a celebrated pioneer in the fashion industry, best-selling author, branding guru, and highly-sought-after motivational speaker.
At the launch event, you will also have the opportunity to meet past winners of the Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award, the sister program to the AEA that has been running in Greece for the past four years, and learn how winning accelerated their own entrepreneurial and business success.
