5:00pm to 7:30pm
As some industrial and post-industrial manufacturing processes die out or move overseas, others are arising out of new discoveries and technologies that will innovate in their own fields as well as reinvigorate others. Well-known companies large and small start where entrepreneurs are willing to take risks and build their teams and businesses. Seeking “knights” to save us in large corporations such as Intel and MCI is not as likely to be sustainable nor as fun or impactful as supporting startups with vision and passion.
Susan Loo Pattee is a native and resident of Colorado Springs, Colorado and describes herself as a “serial entrepreneur” and “civic philanthropist”, both roles she learned from her parents and grandparents. She is currently spending the majority of her time as co-founder and CEO of Colorado Springs Materials Development, LLC; co-founder of Closed Loop Alternative Energy Solutions (CLAES), LLC and co-founder/principal of Accelerating Potential, LLC (AP). She serves on the boards of the Bee Vradenburg Foundation, Peak Education, The Loo Family Foundation and The Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Center, as well as a volunteer mentor to teen moms in Young Lives and member of the City Engagement Team of First Presbyterian Church.
In her over 25 years as an entrepreneur and business owner Susan has worked with a range of clients – including Hewlett-Packard, Intel, the Norwegian State Railways (NSB), TetraPak, and The Gap – helping develop global mindsets and communication skills of high level managers for maximum personal and organizational growth and success. In that sector, in 1989, Susan co-founded International Language School in Oslo, Norway and in 1992 co-founded Geonexus Communications, Inc. in Palo Alto, California.
