Entrepreneurship series examines e-commerce

Three Bates College alumni are featured in The Electronic Revolution, E-Commerce, the next presentation in the Bates Seminar Series in Entrepreneurship, at 7 p.m. Friday, March 3, in the Edmund S. Muskie Archives, 70 Campus Ave.

The Bates alums are Darrell Williams ’86, president and CEO of Washington Emerging Technologies Center, Washington, D.C.; Mark Cauchon ’78, owner of Legal Advice Line Inc., Baltimore, Md.; and Bob Parks ’92, senior sections editor of Wired Magazine. The public is invited to attend free of charge.

Aimed at both students and community members, the Bates Seminar Series in Entrepreneurship is an integrated set of lectures and presentations covering the entrepreneurial process: its history and manifestations from conception to implementation of a new venture. The sessions focus on attributes of entrepreneurs, their search and assessment of opportunities and the identification and obtainment of resources that transform ideas into new ventures. The series exposes the unique ways that the fundamental characteristics of a liberal arts education can be applied in a variety of new ventures.

The seminar series will rely heavily on Bates alumni, parents and Maine entrepreneurs, as well as experts and researchers in the field. The next presentation will be Entrepreneurship and the Next Century: Trends, Developments and Implications at 7 p.m. Friday, April 7, in the Edmund S. Muskie Archives.
