My name is Sarah Hayes, and I am the new Startup Intern at the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council. As the Startup Intern, I will assist in event planning and project management, and I will be functioning in a strategic communications role where I will help innovators and entrepreneurs to develop and grow their sustainable businesses.
I am currently a junior at Bradley University. I am working toward a major in English Language and Literature, with a concentration in Creative Writing, and a minor in Marketing. I strongly believe that one of the keys to success for any business is their ability to communicate clearly and effectively. I hope that I can bring both my communication skills and writing abilities to the table to help develop the ideas of future creators and the practices of local businesses.
I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity, and I am looking forward to meeting everyone involved with the Startup community here in the Greater Peoria area!
