Join the virtual conversation and Q&A with Richard Blumenthal, a second-term U.S. senator from Connecticut, on entrepreneurship and the federal government.

Blumenthal will be the first guest in a spring speaker series presented by Quinnipiac’s People’s United Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship.

Blumenthal will offer his perspective on the role of entrepreneurship and innovation in Connecticut. The virtual program, co-sponsored by the People’s United Center for Women & Business, is free and open to the public and will include an interactive discussion.

“I’m so excited to have outstanding leaders coming to Quinnipiac this spring to participate in our speaker series,” said Fred McKinney, the Carlton Highsmith Chair for Innovation & Entrepreneurship and director of the People’s United Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship. “These diverse political, business, educational and nonprofit leaders will provide unique perspectives and should spur greater innovation and entrepreneurship on campus.”

Participants are encouraged to ask questions live or submit them in advance when they register.

Blumenthal is serving his second term as a senator from Connecticut. He served an unprecedented five terms as Connecticut’s attorney general, fighting for people against large and powerful special interests. His aggressive law enforcement for consumer protection, environmental stewardship, labor rights and personal privacy has helped reshape the role of state attorneys general nationwide and resulted in the recovery of hundreds of millions of dollars for Connecticut taxpayers and consumers each year.

The People’s United Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship strives to support the determination and goals of students and entrepreneurs at Quinnipiac. It is the ideal creative space to dream up, research and turn great ideas into viable business solutions with the potential to go to market. The 2021 speaker series will run from March 3 to April 15, with a total of seven events.
