Cloe Medina Erickson, co-founder of Erickson Creative Group, will be the keynote speaker at the fifth annual Montana State University College of Business Entrepreneur Day, set for 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Thursday, March 26, in ballrooms B and C of the Strand Union Building on the MSU campus.

Erickson's keynote presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 1-2 p.m. A question and answer session will follow her remarks.

Erickson is expected to discuss her experiences as co-founder of Erickson Creative Group, a Livingston-based group that is focused on architecture, historic preservation, photography, film and world exploration. In their work, Erickson and the group's co-founder, Kristoffer Erickson, have collaborated with corporations, non-profits and individuals around the world, including Architecture for Humanity, the Montana Preservation Alliance and the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation. Erickson holds a bachelor's degree in environmental design and a master's degree in architecture, both from MSU.

The day will be broken into several segments. In addition to Erickson's presentation, College of Business faculty and current students will facilitate a group workshop in the morning. The session is designed for high school students and transfer students interested in the entrepreneurship program at MSU.

The MSU College of Business hosts the event as part of its commitment to enhance entrepreneurial spirit and education in the area, as well as its commitment to improving the economic development of the state. The day is geared toward high school and college students, but everyone is welcome.
