Congratulations to Dr. Montoya and Dr. Amadei!

Kudos to Dr. Lupita Montoya and Dr. Bernard Amadei for receiving Cross-Campus Entrepreneurship Initiative Seed
grants in a campus-wide competition.
 
Lupita received funding for a project to integrate entrepreneurship principles focusing on the needs of Latino and Native American communities in an existing sustainable design course taught in a Residential Academic Program, expanding the course offering to all majors.
 

Bernard is part of the team headed by Francy Milner and Dr. Susan Clarke to develop a model for CU-Boulder undergraduates to work collaboratively and entrepreneurially to address social and environmental problems.
