Local News

For the 11th eleventh year in a row, Colorado Mesa University, the Department of Business, and the Alumni Association and fund, held their annual Entrepreneurship Day.

More than 500 local community members attended the event, that allowed students to share business ideas, as well as hear from keynote speaker George Gillett.

Gillett spoke about how he began his career as an entrepreneur, and how he worked his way through many industries, including owning the Montreal Canadians National Hockey League team.
   
He also shared what qualities tend to lead to success for those aspiring to work in the business world.

“The single most important ingredient for a person to have in their personality, if they’re interested in being an entrepreneur, is curiosity” said Gillett.

All of the funds raised at the “E-Day” event will go towards scholarships for business students at CMU.
