Manchester, New Hampshire – On Wednesday, December 7, Laconia-based Orion Entrance Control, Inc., an American manufacturer of robust turnstile and entrance control solutions, will share its company story, opportunities and challenges with a group of hand-selected experts and a live audience to gain valuable feedback and advice. That’s the format of the Entrepreneur Forum, one of the marquee events run by the New Hampshire High Tech Council (Council). Event organizers are excited to share the group of accomplished professionals who will make up the panel of experts that will be lending their experience to the event.

“What makes our Entrepreneur Forum series different from other business advisory programs in New Hampshire is how we hand-tailor our advisory panel to complement the presenting organization,” said Matt Cookson, executive director of the Council. “The committee members who organize this event work tirelessly to identify and secure a panel of advisers with the right background, skills and philosophy to ensure the presenting company will receive tremendous value from the experience of sharing their entrepreneurial journey with all in attendance.”

Advising Orion Entrance Control are: Scott Dunn, senior director of business development at Axis Communications; Doug Cubell, business development manager, Embedded Solutions at HID Global; and Mark Schnepel, president of FlexEnergy Inc.
