UM-Flint's award-winning Entrepreneurs Society hosts dinner, networking event

The Annual Entrepreneurs Society Dinner, now in it’s third year, is a celebration of young entrepreneurs with an evening full of networking possibilities.

The event is set to take place on April 5th at 6 p.m. in downtown Flint at the Northbank Center. Reservations can be made online.

Put on by the University of Michigan-Flint Entrepreneurs Society, established in 2008, the dinner is a place where local companies and business professionals, University Alumni, and current students at the University of Michigan-Flint have the opportunity to connect. 

“One of my favorite aspects of the Entrepreneurs Society is the connection we have with our alumni members and community as a whole. This event allows us to celebrate entrepreneurship and provide our students with an opportunity to network with like-minded people,” said Todd Fridline, president of UM-Flint’s Entrepreneurs Society.

The Entrepreneurs Society at UM-Flint has a long history of winning national recognition. In 2018, the group was a finalist for Best Chapter Advisor (Michael Witt); Best Chapter leader (Fridline) and Best Cross Campus Innovation.

“School of Management students are increasingly interested in entrepreneurship,” said UM-Flint Dean Scott D. Johnson. “Through our new major in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management and with a very active Entrepreneurs Society student club, students are gaining valuable knowledge and networking skills that will contribute to their future success.”
