A pilot program with Koopman Ostbo Marketing Communications (KO), The Koopman Ostbo Business in Residence (BIR), was developed. The main purpose of this particular BIR sponsored by KO is to motivate, encourage, and inspire students involved in all Linfield programs to consider entrepreneurship as a means of solving societal needs through guest speakers and a class to be developed and offered Spring 2015.

During the fall of 2014 I worked closely with KO, the business department, and several other departments to organize and publicize the first guest speaker, Bob Moore from Bob’s Red Mill, as an event co-sponsored by KO, the business department, and PLACE. The event was very well attended and received attention on campus and in the community. Following this event I continued close cooperation with KO to plan and organize the Impact Entrepreneurship class for Spring 2015.


This research was conducted as part of a sabbatical leave in 2014.
