UWM's Lubar Entrepreneurship Center Is Fostering Innovation Through The Pandemic

Since its opening, UWM’s Lubar Entrepreneurship Center has attracted UWM students from across the campus who want to know more about innovation, problem-solving and creativity – the foundation of how entrepreneurs think. When the coronavirus pandemic began, all of the various programs had to move to an online environment.

Yet, in the last year, the Entrepreneurship Center has offered more programming than ever, increasing the number of participants from diverse backgrounds and serving student entrepreneurs in the virtual world just as it did in person. Our guest today is Brian Thompson, director of the Entrepreneurship Center.  Brian is also president of the UWM Research Foundation which helps faculty at UWM bring their ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
