A lecture titled "How Do Work Environments Shape Entrepreneurial Transitions?" is set for 7 p.m. Monday, April 23, in the Friend Center Convocation Room. Stanford University professor Jesper Sorensen will discuss how, despite tales of commercial empires that began as cottage industries, most entrepreneurs are first seasoned by working in firms and organizations related to their field, and how that experience helps the transition to self-employment. A light reception and networking will follow.
