In 2014, there were 71 peer-reviewed journals dedicated to the subject, 1,600 colleges and universities offering at least one entrepreneurship course on the topic, and 4,000 endowed chairs (Neck et al., 2014).

Entrepreneurial Speaker Series

The Entrepreneurial Problem-Solvers Speaker Series aims to bring experienced social, environmental, and business entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs to campus each semester. During their visit, the guests share advice, insights, and wisdom with the campus community. In an effort to share the experience with the campus community, we will share the webinar recordings here. The series is presented by the Davis College of Business and Economics' Venture Lab.
