Rice, Entrepreneurship Education, Congrats! 0

I was happy to see the news release this morning, about Rice Alliance of Rice University’s entrepreneurship center winning the USASBE (United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship) annual award for the outstanding specialty entrepreneurship program. No, I’m not an alum there, but yes, I’m proud to say I’ve visited twice in recent years. I participate in the annual venture competition there, and it’s a great program.

I’ve met the professors, talked to the students, done some guest speaking, and had enough time to see what I’m talking about. There’s a very nice international mix there, and interested, interesting, and engaged students. Plus the Alliance, which is one of the best links between community and academic entrepreneurship anywhere.

My congratulations to Brad Burke, managing director of the Alliance, and Philana Diaz, director of the annual business plan competition. Well deserved.
