Bernie Marcus, Co-Founder of the Home Depot and John Allison, CEO of The CATO Institute recently joined several entrepreneurs and business leaders at the Free-Enterprise Leadership Summit hosted at Northwood University Florida.

Following several notable panelists, Allison shared his thoughts relating to “Limited Government: The Recipe for Economic Growth.”  Following a luncheon, Marcus then delivered “The Future of Free-Enterprise and the American Dream,” at the event which was sponsored by the Job Creators Network and BB&T.

Northwood University and Job Creators Network also officially declared their partnership to share resources and to provide students with valuable networking opportunities and information relating to employment. According to Northwood University President Tom Duncan, NU students and supporters will gain valuable knowledge and connections from the partnership with JCN. “We are excited to host The Free-Enterprise Leadership Summit in partnership with JCN,” said Dr. Duncan.  “Free markets and free peoples are foundational beliefs for our University, and welcoming the Job Creators Network to our campus demonstrates our continuing commitment to promoting the ideas and values necessary to job creation,” he added.

“The best defense against bad public policy is a well-informed public and we are excited to take part in the Free-Enterprise Leadership Summit to help spread this belief,” Job Creators Network President Alfredo Ortiz said. “We are thrilled to partner with NU to educate students on how these policies can affect them and how they can protect themselves against them,” he added.
