Are Entrepreneurs Born or Made? A Presentation by Haas Professor Kurt Beyer
Monday, February 10, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)
La Jolla, CA
In 2011 Peter Thiel, known for his early angel investment in Facebook and the co-founding of Paypal, paid 20 teenagers $100,000 each to not attend college. Thiel is not alone in his belief that entrepreneurs are a rare breed that can bypass formal education.
Ironically, over the past 20 years more than two-thirds of U.S. colleges and universities teach entrepreneurship to students from all walks of life. Can you learn to be an entrepreneur in the safety of a classroom, by reading a book, or by attending this presentation? If so, what are the important lessons that can be taught?
Come join Berkeley-Haas professor Dr. Kurt Beyer and your fellow Haas alums to discover more about how successful entrepreneurs are made.
When & Where
Berkeley-Haas Alumni Network
Welcome! The mission of our local Haas Alumni Network chapter is to help alumni in our region connect with each other and with the Haas School of Business. Our goals are to build professional relationships, form friendships, and disseminate information. We hope that by providing a vehicle for personal and professional growth, we can in turn advance the standing of the Haas School of Business. And that helps us all.
We will periodically host events to increase the value and importance of building relationships with alumni, current students, faculty, and staff. Our belief is that an engaged and responsive alumni community contributes to the strong brand equity of The Haas School of Business and UC Berkeley.
