May 17, 2012: Regis Entrepreneur Club Event The May Regis Entrepreneur Club event focused on networking — matching students with businesses, businesses with faculty, and faculty with students. The networking focused within the subjects of research and entrepreneurship. The event experimented with a live networking model called REMatch — Research/Entrepreneur Match. For this model, any student, business or faculty member may bring a request/search for resources and make a short pitch (ask for what you need) to the audience. If any of the attendees or the someone they know may meet the need, information is exchanged. Karl Dakin, Executive Director of the Sullivan Chair for Free Enterprise and Don Bridger, Director of Grants led a panel discussion on networking as part of the event.

September 28, 2011: Regis Entrepreneur Club September Meeting: I Am an Entrepreneur The topic of being an entrepreneur was added to the program for the Regis Entrepreneur Club's September meeting. In our current economic crisis, entrepreneurs are gaining recognition as one of the keys to recovery. You see references in the news, in editorials, blogs and even in government appropriations. The importance of being an entrepreneur has never been greater. So what is an entrepreneur? Putting aside momentarily Webster’s Dictionary, President Bush's definition and, well, everybody else's definition, I consider an entrepreneur to be a problem solver: a person who sees a problem, comes up with a solution and acts to solve the problem. Most times, an entrepreneur is considered a businessperson. This is because their solution to a problem takes the form of a product or service that is sold for a fee where all of the rules of business apply. However, nonprofits and government agencies also sell products and services to solve a problem, so the definition is not limited to business people. Problem solving does not always result in a new product or service. Sometime it means taking something that already exists and doing it differently: innovation. Sometimes, it means getting a lot of people to do something that they were not doing before: collaboration. Sometimes, it just means stepping up and doing something instead of doing nothing. Or in other words: leadership. Entrepreneurs can solve the problems of the world – both the very big and the very small. They can solve problems of affordable energy, shelter, food, and healthcare. They can design and develop new systems that are more effective and efficient. They can achieve social justice by making the necessities of life available to more people. Anyone can be an entrepreneur. Just do it! However, a good and effective entrepreneur will be more successful. To be a good entrepreneur requires learning. This includes learning in the classroom (however defined) and in the field. This is best when learning from the successes and failures of others so that mistakes do not have to be repeated. The Regis Entrepreneur Club is dedicated to teaching its members about entrepreneurship while equipping individuals with the knowledge needed to be the type of entrepreneur that solves problems and makes a positive impact.
