Tell us about your community-building activities in 2019 (<500 characters)

In my role as Professor, Management, Small Business & Entrepreneurship for WCSU I educate students and connect them with small businesses in the greater Danbury region, helping all learn, grow and succeed. In 2019 I collaborated with CERC, SCORE, CTSBDC and the Danbury Chamber, advised 8 small business owners, held four panel discussions/workshops showcasing local entrepreneurs, exposed 30 students to 4 local business owners, connected 23 students to local resources for growing their businesses.

 

What community-building goals did you accomplish or milestones did you hit in 2019? (<500 characters)

I was nominated as CT Entrepreneur Awards 2019 Community Builder, and won 2019 Community Promotor of the Year for WCSU for my efforts to encourage local entrepreneurs. I nominated 11 individuals from the Danbury region for awards in various categories. Of those nominated, two won. Overall, thanks in part to the efforts of myself, Mike Kaltschnee and Tony Vengrove, Danbury area entrepreneurs and their businesses received awards in 13 out of a possible 23 categories. We hope to do that well in 2020!
