We are fortunate to have Karl Dakin Executive Director for Sullivan Chair for Free Enterprise at Regis University speak this Friday.
What the Sullivan Chair is doing at Regis University to improve and expand entrepreneurship in Colorado:
1. Changing entrepreneur education to make it just in time, immersive and contextual so that recipients obtain knowledge ready to use.
2. Improving access to capital by hosting public forum - the Colorado Capital Congress - creating new class of brokers and promoting small dollar funding (crowdfunding and impact investments).
3. Community development - progress on building a neighborhood information center in Berkeley.
