So you want to be an entrepreneur? Your first question may be, “How do I decide on an industry?”

Alumni of all business schools in the Puget Sound area and their guests are invited to Stanford Business School’s annual entrepreneurship event. Robert Chess, a lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in entrepreneurship and a founder/CEO of multiple technology-based companies, will shed light on key issues potential entrepreneurs should consider, using as examples two sectors that are currently very attractive to entrepreneurs and investors: health care and clean tech. Joining Robert Chess will be two founder-entrepreneurs from these sectors, Ralph Derrickson of Carena and Rick Luebbe, MBA ’97, of EnerG2, who will share their stories, challenges and insights for prospective entrepreneurs. You can expect a lively presentation as well as a wonderful opportunity to mingle with other business school alumni.

Cost is $35 per person, and includes hors d’oeuvres and beverages.

Registration is required by Wednesday, May 2.
