The Jay and Patty Baker School of Business and Technology, in conjunction with the Entrepreneurship Department, is pleased to announce the kickoff of the first event in its new Entrepreneurship Lecture Series.
The first guest will be Craig Newmark, the founder of craigslist and the Craig Newmark Foundation, and an “Old-School Nerd.”
The format will be a “fireside chat” between Newmark and William Reinisch, chair of the Entrepreneurship Department, covering a host of different topics with a substantial question-and-answer session from the audience.
