The Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at IU’s Kelley School of Business will host Chicago Cubs and Incapital LLC Chairman Tom Ricketts as the speaker for the eighth annual IU Entrepreneurial Connection Day to be held Friday, Sept. 9.
“Mr. Ricketts has a great perspective on the entrepreneurial nature of businesses, even those as old as the Cubs organization,” said Idalene “Idie” Kesner, dean of the IU Kelley School of Business and the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management. “We’re very pleased that he’ll be our keynote speaker, and I’m sure his insights will be interesting and valuable to those who attend.”
Ricketts is scheduled to speak at 1 p.m. in Room 2075 of the Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center. This will be followed by an annual networking event for Kelley entrepreneur alumni and students from 2 to 4 p.m. Registration is required to attend, and admission is limited. The free event is open to IU students, faculty and staff, but reservations are required. For more information, read here or view an explanatory video here.
