Sebo Series Canceled for Spring 2020


robert seboThe Sebo Series in Entrepreneurship is the culmination of Entrepreneurship Week (E-Week) presented by the Paul J. Hooker Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership in the Schmidthorst College of Business at Bowling Green State University. Each year this program attracts highly successful, world-class entrepreneurs to campus who share their valuable messages to more than 600 business and community leaders, students, faculty, and administrators. This renowned program has been a sold-out event and we expect the same for this year.
We are excited to bring you the 2020 Sebo Series with the theme – “Innovation Nation: Everyone is an Entrepreneur”.
