Entrepreneurial Leadership Award

The Entrepreneurial Leadership Award, established by C.W. and Dorothy Conn, recognizes outstanding business leaders who have achieved extraordinary success.

Recognition of new ventures

The award honors a nationally eminent business leader who has been instrumental in the establishment and growth of a successful new venture. A “new venture” may be a start-up or an entrepreneurial effort within an existing company.

Networking opportunity

This award program gives students and faculty an opportunity to interact with and learn from the honoree. Recipients speak to classes, host small roundtable discussion sessions and participate in an awards ceremony. Local business and community leaders also are invited to join in these discussions.
