Serial Entrepreneur Dima Elissa to Speak at 2013 CEO National Conference
Dima described herself as an “accidental entrepreneur"
As an Adjunct faculty member at Associated Colleges of the Midwest, Dima is presently able to share what she has learned firsthand as an entrepreneur. Asked why she is passionate about teaching entrepreneurship to others, Dima replied, “Teaching allows me to give, give back and hopefully I can help open doors to the students at ACM and, particularly, the female entrepreneurs looking to make their mark. As I teach and impart my knowledge, I learn from the students about their perspective, experiences and motivations. That two-way enrichment isn’t easy to come by.”
