With 30+ programs held year-round, it can be difficult to stay up to date with everything that’s happening at the McFerrin Center. More importantly, we have an amazing group of student entrepreneurs that are traveling the world, developing new ideas, launching companies, and growing into talented young entrepreneurs. In an effort to highlight and celebrate the accomplishments of these students, the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship will be hosting The Last Word, a not-so-average demo day. Rather than feature traditional student presentations or pitches, The Last Word will provide attendees with an interactive platform to hear about our student’s experiences and ideas and visit with them one-on-one about their entrepreneurial journey over the past year. The event will uniquely feature students who have been involved with McFerrin Center programs and events, such as Startup Aggieland, Entrepreneurial Experiences Funds, and competitions such as Aggie Pitch. Join us on April 16, 2019 to celebrate and see the accomplishments of Texas A&M’s finest student entrepreneurs.
