Clinton E Day Speaker

Clint’s lectures are popular because they combine the academic side of entrepreneurship with actual small business experience.  His stories bring startups to life having started, built up, and sold three businesses.  Real-life anecdotes engage audiences and make it easier to understand entrepreneurship. As a Bronze Star Vietnam veteran, Clint particularly likes training veterans who make great entrepreneurs (Specialties, Vetrepreneurship). They’ve been trained in leadership, know how to work in teams, and can overcome obstacles to accomplish missions.

Each lecture or keynote address is specifically tailored to the audience he is addressing. However, his most popular topics include:

  • Build an Entrepreneurship Ecosystem
  • History of American Entrepreneurship
  • Lessons Learned from Three Startups
  • How to Understand Lean Startup
  • Entrepreneurship Chart as Course
  • The High Percentage Model Reduces Risk
  • E-Mindset Generates Student Success
  • Why Veterans Make Good Entrepreneurs
  • MIT Disciplined Entrepreneurship Method
  • The Five-Day Sprint for Solving a Problem
