“College Entrepreneur” Nathan Latka to Share Entrepreneurial Spirit with Judson Students (ELGIN, IL - February 28, 2011) Nathan Latka, the self-proclaimed "College Entrepreneur," will be making a guest appearance at Judson University on Friday, March 4. Latka is scheduled to speak in Judson's Herrick Chapel at 10 a.m. for a moderated question and answer session. The event is free and open to the public and all attendees are welcome to ask Latka about his burgeoning entrepreneurial endeavors as well as his involvement in Judson's inaugural World Leaders Forum set to take place on the Elgin campus on Wednesday, April 13. After Friday's chapel, Latka will be visiting different classes across campus.
Latka is one of three accomplished entrepreneurs chosen to speak at the World Leaders Forum. A college junior at Virginia Polytechnic and State University, Latka is just 21 years old but already owns two successful businesses, all of which focus on social media. Within the first 12 months after launching those businesses, his hard work had already earned him a six-figure income, providing the means to fund his college education at the same time.
The annual World Leaders Forum will bring recognized world leaders to the Judson University campus each year with the intent to inspire and ignite a flame of leadership for all who attend. President George W. Bush will be this year's keynote speaker. All proceeds from the World Leaders Forum this year will be used to begin the Entrepreneurship Studies Endowment Fund.
