Higher education often keeps business out of the classroom; however, for several universities along the Front Range, this has changed. Now at the frontiers of innovation and technology, higher education is collaborating with the startup world to train tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and tech all-stars. During this panel discussion, we’ll hear from university leaders about how they are preparing students to develop and lead the tech startups of tomorrow.
