Hosted by the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan
Monday, November 15
6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.
Alumni Center

Identifying a need and doing something about it is what is at the heart of entrepreneurship. But how do you find those needs? How do you figure out what to do about it? What does it take to become an entrepreneur? How do you overcome challenges you might face?

Learn how two recent U-M alumni did all of this and more to create their own company, Real Time Farms. Karl, ’03, MSE’05, and Cara, ’03, Rosaen created Real Time Farms to engage and educate consumers about their local food ecosystem; connecting them to their local farmers and all of the ways they can find local, farm fresh food in their communities, and to provide tools for restaurants and food retailers to showcase to consumers all of the ways they source locally.

You’ll walk away from this session of Real Life 101 with a clearer vision of how to become an entrepreneur and knowing how to capitalize on the needs the greater population may have.

The event is free, and dinner will be provided.
