Another installment in the Scheinfeld Center’s popular Enlightened Entrepreneurship Series, this program will focus on Coryat and his journey to success during a casual chat. The audience will have an opportunity to personally interact during a reception and networking to follow.

Coryat will tell his story of starting several companies in his garage before creating ValueClick Inc., which grew to be one of the world’s largest integrated online marketing companies, and we will learn what this serial entrepreneur is up to now.

The Enlightened Entrepreneurship Series is offered as an experiential component of the Scheinfeld Center’s academic program.

“This is our signature program offered in conversational style,” Scheinfeld Center Director Melissa Moreno said. ”Our series gives students and our community access to highly successful and unique local entrepreneurs and innovators, which we hope infuses inspiration and motivation in new entrepreneurs and existing business owners.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
