Seminar: The Challenge of Entrepreneurship

On November 22, at 9:30 a.m. meet Jim McNally ('86 PhD), COO, Applied Technology Associates and former CEO, TruTouch, and hear his thoughts on “The Challenge of Entrepreneurship.”

An expert in precision-sensing measurement and control devices with commercial and military applications, McNally brings invaluable insights for students considering an entrepreneurial career path. His contributions advanced the development and commercialization of noninvasive alcohol testing products, recognized by Time magazine as an invention of the year in 2006. The presentation in ASM 1064 will be followed by a question and answer session. A light breakfast will be served.

The series of six seminar workshops, supported by Los Alamos National Laboratory and US Bank, helps to prepare students for the UNM Business Plan Competition. A leading professional in the field of accounting, business finance, new business funding, technology management, business plan presentation skills, or other related area will offer students an extension of the knowledge they gain in the classroom. It also provides the opportunity for student entrepreneurs to initiate relationships with key community influencers in a dialogue-style setting.

Seminars are held on selected Friday dates in ASM 1064, from 9:30am – 11:30am. Seminars are open to students from Anderson and from all schools and colleges at UNM.
