Exploring the Intersection of Science and Entrepreneurship

The Millikin University Institute for Science Entrepreneurship (ISE) is pleased to host the 2019-2020 speaker series. The speaker series focuses on science entrepreneurship and how an increased emphasis on entrepreneurship can spark job creation and societal well-being.  The 2019-2020 speaker series is brought to you by Busey.  Busey has served as the title sponsor of the series since 2015 and we thank Busey for its generous and sustained support.
