Angelo Mazzone, hospitality entrepreneur and owner of PRIME Business Dining, will be speaking on campus this Wednesday.
Sponsored by the entrepreneurs and investment clubs, the event is open to all students on campus. There will be free food from PRIME available in Brahan Hall, room 001 where the event is being held.
“The main objective of this event is to show students that entrepreneurship is an alternative career path,” said Jad El Khoury, president of the entrepreneurs club, in an email interview. “Entrepreneurship isn’t something that a lot of people know about. I strongly believe that this event will lead to more students seeing that becoming a successful entrepreneur is within reach if the proper tools and the right knowledge is provided to them.”
Angelo Mazzone is the owner of numerous high-end restaurants including Prime at Saratoga National Gold Club. PRIME Business Dining operates food service at the Empire State Plaza, Excelsior College, GlobalFoundries, Golub Corporation and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, among others.
“Angelo Mazzone will be discussing his own personal journey of success. He’s a very influential person who has build a hospitality empire throughout the Capital Region,” El Khoury said. “In addition, he will discuss what hardships he had to face along the way of developing and building his business.”
