Cuesta College is hosting the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour on April 24, inviting young entrepreneurs from across the country to come to San Luis Obispo and empower students with their business practices and achieved success.

The nationwide tour began in 2006 and has already visited more than 60 schools along the way. The goal of the tour is to expose individuals to entrepreneurship as a career path, as well as to infuse students with the entrepreneurial mindset regardless of their chosen career field.

The speakers on the tour are young entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders from around the country who have achieved success before the age of 25.

The half-day event will include a keynote speaker, workshop, a structured networking event and a panel discussion. Participants can attend one section or for the whole day. There will also be Cuesta College representative and local business exhibitors present to discuss educational and employment opportunities in San Luis Obispo County.

The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour will visit Cuesta College on Friday, April 24 from 3-7 p.m. Free food and prizes will be offered. To RSVP for the event, visit
