SBCC's Scheinfeld Center Presents "A Conversation with Brian Coryat" on November 16
Santa Barbara City College’s Scheinfeld Center Enlightened Entrepreneurship Series will host Brian Coryat, Founder of ValueClick and Founder/CEO of Local Market Launch, on Friday, November 16 from 3:30- 5:30 p.m. at the Fé Bland Forum on SBCC’s West Campus. This event is open to the public and free of charge. However, space is limited and RSVPs are required. To register for the event, please go to: http://scheinfeld.sbcc.edu/events_lectures.html
Another installment in the Scheinfeld Center's popular Enlightened Entrepreneurship Series, this program will focus on Brian Coryat and his journey to success during a casual chat. The audience will have an opportunity to personally interact during a reception and networking to follow.
Brian will tell his story of starting several companies in his garage before creating ValueClick, Inc. (NASDAQ: VCLK) that grew to be one of the world's largest integrated online marketing companies. And we will learn what this serial entrepreneur is up to now.
The Enlightened Entrepreneurship Series is offered as an experiential component of the Scheinfeld Center’s academic program. “This is our signature program offered in conversational style,” said SBCC's Scheinfeld Center's director Melissa Moreno. ”Our series gives students and our community access to highly successful and unique local entrepreneurs and innovators which we hope infuses inspiration and motivation in new entrepreneurs and existing business owners.”
