Bringing Milwaukee Innovators to UWM
Every month, the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center invites a local entrepreneur or community innovator for an intimate chat with UWM students, faculty, and staff. By offering these talks, LEC hopes to build a larger and more diverse network of students involved in entrepreneurship, including one that spans across disciplines and majors.
Social Good morning is a talk series hosted by our very own Entrepreneur-in-Residence of Social Innovation, Mark Fairbanks. LEC invites one local social innovator per month to have a short interview with Mark and then an open-format discussion, fielding questions from the audience about their strategies and passions. Topics of conversation range from poverty to sustainability to inclusivity and beyond. Join us for this fantastic opportunity to hear from and chat with a Milwaukee community professional and forge meaningful connections with a multidisciplinary audience of faculty, community members, and students alike. Have a free cup of coffee on us and learn about what it takes to become a social innovator in Milwaukee.
