SMUHSD GATE Parents Group College Planning Series
Finding Your Niche:
Disruptive Technologies, Entrepreneurship and You 

A free event for students, parents and the general public.
Presented by Mr. Syrous Parsay

Ever wonder about technology solutions that change the way we live and do things? What do these disruptive technologies have in common?  What are the new and upcoming frontiers?  How are they funded? Who influences them? What college majors lead to them? How much money can be made? What is the typical career path? How does one get started?

Students and families are invited to attend a presentation by Mr. Syrous Parsay, a retired inventor, entrepreneur and business executive, who will speak about how disruptive technologies change the world and how to start thinking like an entrepreneur. The lecture will be followed by optional small group exercise.
