Entrepreneurship In Engineering Seminar

The Department of Mechanical Engineering presents a lecture by Dr. Larry Bickle entitled 'Entrepreneurship in Engineering:  Managing People.' Dr. Bickle, a retired Co-Founder and Partner in Haddington Ventures, a Private Equity firm with over $500 million under management, will discuss the individual entrepreneur’s responsibility to both hire the “right” people and to proactively create the “right” culture. Based on real world experience and examples from Dr. Bickle’s 30+ year career as a “serial entrepreneur” involved in ten successful technical start ups (and several unsuccessful ones!), the lecture takes place in the Centennial Engineering Center Auditorium from 3:30 – 4:30 PM on Friday, March 14.
