It’s Sonja today with a quick post to announce that our own Steve Trautman is this semester’s Entrepreneur-in-Residence at MSU’s College of Business. Chosen for the role by the Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship for the New West and the Alderson Program in Entrepreneurship, Steve will spend this week with students and faculty, sharing his experiences and expertise earned from more than two decades of entrepreneurial endeavors.
The program, which hosts a successful entrepreneur in residence each semester, provides students with learning opportunities for real life, practical wisdom on starting and running businesses. Former MSU Entrepreneurs-in-Residence include Shannon Stowell, currently the president of the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA), and Mr. Gannon, lifelong entrepreneur and international advisory board member of the Global Compact Cities Programme.
So, for the rest of the week, Steve will be in Bozeman, MT, putting his speaking and knowledge transfer skills to work as he teaches and hopefully inspires (and gets inspired by) some of tomorrow’s business leaders.
