Dear Friends,

I am delighted to announce the inauguration of the CMNS Board of Visitors Entrepreneurship Lecture Series.

Dave Baggett, class of 1992, will present
"A Tale of Three Start-Ups"

March 15, 2012
4-5 pm in the Physics Lecture Hall, room 1410

Dave is an inspiring speaker and the co-founder of the "Crash Bandicoot" video game franchise; of ITA Software, a travel search engine bought by Google; and of the revolutionary new email platform "inky.com."  Come and hear what this entrepreneur has learned at each of his three start-ups, and how you, too, can bring your ideas to the marketplace successfully. An interview with Dave is featured here: http://www.arhu.umd.edu/news/coded-entrepreneurial-success

The university community - students, faculty, and staff are cordially invited to attend!
A reception will follow in the G. Forrest Woods Atrium, Chemistry Building.
