Working with University Business Schools | Capitol Hill Business Session

Wednesday, June 26, 2019, 8:30 AM

WORKING WITH UNIVERSITY BUSINESS SCHOOLS Entrepreneurs and business owners – have you ever looked to the university business schools for assistance in growing your business? They can be a resource for education, programs, and student manpower. Brian Becker, Director of Small Business Outreach at Catholic University’s Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship will discuss the small business growth opportunities available to entrepreneurs through Ciocca, such as the Inner City Capital Connections (ICCC) program, and ways the local business community can connect with and tap into the power of student projects and internships. About Brian Becker Brian Becker is the Director of Small Business Outreach in the Ciocca Center for Principled Entrepreneurship. Brian is focused on connecting the students and expert faculty in the Busch School with the vibrant small business community in Washington, D.C. Brian has employed an entrepreneurial mindset throughout his career and has served as a teacher, administrator, and fundraiser in two different D.C. Catholic schools before joining CUA. Whether in the classroom, the board room, parent meetings, donor meetings, or planning events, Brian believes in the power of leveraging shared values to create understanding, growth, and mutual satisfaction. Most recently, as a part of his fundraising efforts at the Washington Jesuit Academy — a tuition-free Catholic school for young men grades 4-8 in Brookland — Brian created and executed NE EATS: A Celebration of Neighborhood Food and Beverage. Over 50 of D.C.’s best and brightest food entrepreneurs donated their products for the enjoyment of the attendees and the benefit of WJA and its mission each year.
