National University Invites Military Alumni to Entrepreneurship Dinner

National University was a sponsor of the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) conference in San Diego, and invited faculty, military students and military alumni to a conference dinner aboard the U.S.S. Midway on Monday, January 11.

National University System Chancellor, Dr. Michael Cunningham spoke at the dinner, and veterans and active duty students who run businesses or aspire to be entrepreneurs had the opportunity to network and meet with various business owners, professors and university administrators.

USASBE is the largest independent, professional, academic organization in the world dedicated to advancing the discipline of entrepreneurship. With over 1000 members from universities and colleges, for-profit businesses, nonprofit organizations, and the public sector, the Association is a diverse mix of professionals that share a common commitment to fostering entrepreneurial attitudes and behaviors.

Alumni attending the event included Marine Corps veteran and Military Relocation Professional Tim Kirk, a realtor at Pacific Sotheby's International Realty and Co-Founder/Vice Chairman of Hire Our Heroes (a non-profit organization committed to providing veterans with the tools necessary to secure employment.)

Also present were Marine Corps veteran and Oceanside-based performance consultant George Hood, who holds seven world records for a variety of endurance events; and Marine Corps veteran and businessman Albert Renteria, who is Founder and CEO of the Southwest Veterans' Business Resource Center.

National University is committed to the academic and professional success of military and veteran students, many of whom utilize their business skills and entrepreneurial talents to the service of fellow veterans.
