Carolina Student Biotechnology Network Announces Speakers for Fall Seminar Series

The first speaker will be Lesa Mitchell of the Kauffman Foundation on 9/27, 3:00pm, at the Michael Hooker Research Bldg., BCBS Rm, UNC. Attendance is open to all.

From CSBN's website:

"Lesa Mitchell is a vice president with the Kauffman Foundation. The Kauffman Foundation was established in the mid-1960s by the late entrepreneur and philanthropist Ewing Marion Kauffman. The vision of the Kauffman Foundation is to foster “a society of economically independent individuals who are engaged citizens, contributing to the improvement of their communities. ” In service of this vision, and in keeping with our founder’s wishes, the Foundation focuses its grant making and operations on two areas: advancing entrepreneurship and improving the education of children and youth."

I recently participated in a Kaufmann foundation survey on entrepreneurs. Will be interested in hearing what the speaker has to say about entrepreneurialism, and how this ties in with today's scientists.
