Marlboro College Graduate School
28 Vernon Street
Brattleboro, VT 05301
||William New has pursued a career as physician, engineer, educator and serial entrepreneur.
He savored the triumph but later regretted the perils of venture capital and Wall Street in building companies across the US, Canada and the UK.
Bill’s consistent goal was to create and nurture customer-centric sustainable enterprises. He shares these experiences with the hope that young social entrepreneurs forearmed can build sustainable companies that put people before profit, work over wealth, substance above spectacle, and cultivate happiness not hedonism.
Bill leads a conversational Q&A session about this and other lessons learned over many years as a successful social entrepreneur, and proposes strategies going forward to create sustainable organizations that avoid self-destructive money-obsessed consumption to prosper instead with longevity, health, and happiness exemplified in other developed economies.
Dr. New retired from Stanford University after 25 years of faculty service, but continues biotech research supporting commercial spinouts as adjunct professor at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC. He earned BS and MS degrees in engineering at Stanford, his MD at Duke University, a PhD at UCLA, and an MBA at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business.
A board director of numerous companies, non-profits, schools and universities, he currently serves as a trustee of nearby Putney School.
A networking social with refreshments will start at 5:30 p.m., with Dr. New's presentation beginning at 6:00 p.m.
Bill suggests reviewing the following before his presentation, if possible:
