Neuger Communications Group’s next Common Good Breakfast Series event, “Cultivating Entrepreneurial Spirit,” will take place at the Minneapolis Hilton at 7:30 a.m. on June 14. Carla Pavone, Ph.D., associate director of the Gary S. Holmes Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, is slated to speak.

Organizations everywhere want to know the best way to support entrepreneurs. In a world of IPOs, mergers and giant corporations, how can businesses continue to foster an entrepreneurial spirit? This event will explore how companies can encourage employees to identify opportunities for growth and evolution.

Pavone also serves as the program director of Minnesota Innovation Corps (MIN-Corps), the University of Minnesota I-Corps site. Prior to becoming an academic, Pavone worked in publishing and tech startups and in financial services (mainly leading internal corporate startups, change initiatives and turnarounds). She has taught entrepreneurship, strategy, and leadership at the University of Minnesota and University of Missouri-Kansas City. Pavone has a Bachelor of Arts in biology from the University of Pennsylvania, an MBA in general management from Harvard Business School and a Ph.D. in business administration from the University of Minnesota. Pavone serves on the board of directors of Social Venture Partners Minnesota and WomenVenture.

Registration, breakfast and networking for the event will begin at 7:30 a.m. The formal presentation starts at 8 a.m.
