2013 Speaker Series


VIEW’s vision is to develop tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, who will drive the success of traditional and emerging organizations and will build the infrastructure for modern Idaho. To do so will require that VIEW create an entrepreneurial climate among all sectors of the economy in its effort to transform ideas and innovations to marketable products and services; to develop and strengthen entrepreneurial networks to effectively transfer new technologies to Idaho’s industries and business; and to develop work-ready graduates equipped with globally competitive ideas for new products, service, and infrastructure.

Thanks to the generous corporate donations from Wells Fargo Bank, the VIEW Entrepreneurship Speaker Series began in the fall semester of 2008 and will continue through the 2013 spring semester. The entrepreneurship speaker series is open to the campus and the local community.
