660_ Colorado's Entrepreneur EcoSystem and ICT
Governor Bill Ritter was Introduced by Phil DiStefano, Provost and Interim Chancellor, CU Boulder. (Ritter is a CU Law School Alum, a 1981 graduate) The Governor addressed the topic of Entrepreneurship in Colorado. "As Governor I have this privilege of meeting really special people, and special in that they really contribute in a significant way. Brad Feld has been this remarkable presence in Colorado and as Governor, I can take advantage of having a person like Brad talk to me, help me, mentor me about this field, about ICT (Information, Communications, Technology) and about the world of entrepreneurship and his cohort in this is Phil Weiser. I lived in Africa for three years and I was a prosecutor before becoming Governor, and I used to tell folks, as a prosecutor, if someone would have said to me, "We need ubiquitous broadband", I would have arrested them, I didn't know what it meant. These guys really helped me, about this issue, make sense of this industry. Phil is really gifted in his own right as a law professor, but also about how he developed this eco system that we're a part of. We are working in this state so that we can emerge from this economic downturn in a way that is faster, stronger, that we are better positioned for the future because together we've established a strategy to get there." Ritter went onto talk about the economy and Colorado's Entrepreneur EcoSystem.
