HAYS, Kan. -- Fort Hays State University has produced entrepreneurs who are scattered across America and beyond, but the university is particularly proud of those who have remained in northwest Kansas.

Accordingly, from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. on March 29, Fort Hays State will showcase four young Hays area entrepreneurs who have started three Hays-based businesses. The Entrepreneur Direct event will be in the Fort Hays Ballroom of the Memorial Union.

Each of these businesses has a market footprint well beyond the immediate community. The presenters will be: Lance Bickle and Dallas Haselhorst, co-founders of Sicoir Computer Technologies, a technology service provider and retailer; Joseph Boeckner, founder of Joe Bob Outfitters, a storefront and online retailer of guns and shooting supplies; and Dustin Roths, founder of Diamond R Jewelry, Diamond Broker of Kansas.

Entrepreneur Direct is a speaker series that features successful entrepreneurs in an informal setting accessible to students, faculty and the public. The program is intended to connect students with successful entrepreneurs who have stories and advice to share. A panel asks questions about entrepreneurship and encourages questions and interaction with the audience.
