Venture capital investing has grown from a small investment pool in the 1960s and early 1970s to a mainstream asset class that is a viable and significant part of the institutional and corporate investment portfolio. 

Confirmed speakers are:

Gavin Gillas – Owner, Intellectual Licensing LLC

John Hull – Managing Director of the UO Business Innovation Institute, past managing director at OVP Venture Partners

Christopher Klemm – Willamette Angel Fund Manager and Active Angel Investor of the Oregon Angel Fund 

Event co-chairs are Brent Hamilton, Dustin Littrell, and KaLynn Alley.

If you are a 1L or 2L and have an interest in engaging in more business law opportunities at the law school, consider applying to be a part of next year's LESA Board of Directors. LESA will hold elections in the spring for additions to the Board next year; so, come get a taste for what Law and Entrepreneurship is all about at this event, and look for LESA Board application announcements later this semester.

LESA also sponsors events such as Law of Beer, Law of Wine, the In-House Counsel forum, and the Intellectual Property panel, in addition to offering business cards and local wine.
