Ain Lecture Series

Each semester, the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship hosts the Lecture Series. These events feature an entrepreneur, UR alumni, innovative educator, or other distinguished guest speaker. The lecturer presents a talk free to students, faculty, staff, and the general public. The lecture is followed by time for Q&A, as well as a reception where the speaker can interact with the event attendees.
