A message from the Dean
Greetings from the College of Business Administration at Bowling Green State University. Mark your calendars for Entrepreneurship Week (E-Week), April 3-7, 2017!

We are gearing up for this exciting week that celebrates the spirit of entrepreneurship. E-Week features renowned speakers presenting to our students, alumni and regional business leaders, plus dynamic events like keynote speaker Sir Ken Robinson at the Sebo Series in Entrepreneurship and a reception recognizing Dr. Gene Poor’s 50 years of teaching entrepreneurship – and that’s just the start.

Read more about E-Week in this issue and watch for next month’s Biz Brief featuring The Hatch, our own “Shark Tank” style student event that wraps up during E-Week. In next month's Biz Brief, you'll meet our alumni mentors, Falcon investors and nine Hatchlings!

Warm regards,
