The University of Delaware’s Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management is hosting its seventh annual Hospitality Entrepreneurship Summit, Saturday, March 29 and Sunday, March 30, 2014. The Summit is designed to educate and encourage promising underrepresented business and hospitality students to consider establishing businesses and/or franchises in the hospitality and tourism industry. The agenda focus is on entrepreneurship, small business planning and franchising. Invited participants include business and hospitality students from Mid-Atlantic historically black colleges and universities, University of Delaware and high schools from Delaware, Pennsylvania and Washington, DC. As part of the popular two-day conference, an annual business plan competition is held, which awards scholarship funds to students from the winning schools.
