Melissa Bradley leads new AU Entrepreneurship and Innovation Initiative

Melissa Bradley is the inaugural director for the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Initiative at American University's Kogod School of Business, WBJ's Tina Reed reported today (see American University to launch new innovation center).

The new initiative is designed to make AU a player in the region.   According to the article,

The innovation center will offer access to resources like pitch competitions, a speaker series, mentorship and research partnerships to students across AU, not just business students, Bradley said. The goal is to teach more innovative thinking whether the students plan to start a business or no.

Bradley was DC Action for Children's first paid executive director back in 1996-1997.   I had the pleasure of working for her during my second year MSW placement while at Howard University School of Social Work.
