President's Dream Colloquium on Entrepreneurship, Spring 2014
The translation of knowledge, experience and opportunity into the discovery, evaluation and implementation of novel business or social enterprises is at the core of entrepreneurship.
It is the means by which people in diverse social settings empower themselves creatively, socially and economically to improve their own circumstances as well as those of their families and communities. Entrepreneurship turns ideas and vision into ventures that survive and thrive given the right conditions, motivation and knowledge.
We invite you to join us in the Spring 2014 President's Dream Colloquium on Entrepreneurship, entitled "Looking for Entrepreneurial Opportunities in All the Usual (and Some Unusual) Places."
The series of free public lectures will create an interdisciplinary forum for dialogue between faculty members, students and diverse community groups.
