The final talk in the Entrepreneurons series this fall will feature Chicago-based entrepreneur Thomas K.R. Stovall, a leader with over 20 years of experience launching and growing small businesses. Stovall leads Intention Mastery, a logistics-focused business curriculum that teaches entrepreneurs and business leaders practical ways to quickly close gaps between intentions, deliberate actions, and measurable outcomes to make bottom line revenue predictable and amplify growth in their companies.
Stovall also leads ImBlackInTech Membership Network, an entrepreneurship organization that supports Black & Latinx founders of emerging startups. With close to 6,000 people in IMBN across 16 countries, founders in the ImBlackInTech network have raised and generated over $415 million in their respective startups.
Stovall’s presentation, entitled An Omnigap® Approach: The One-Sheet Business Alignment Plan for Leaders at Every Level will take place on Tuesday, December 3 from 4pm to 6pm at the Discovery Building on the UW–Madison campus (330 N. Orchard St.), and is free and open to the community. The Entrepreneurons series is co-hosted by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) and UW–Madison’s Discovery to Product (D2P).
D2P and WARF are collaborating with the UW-Madison Division of Diversity, Equity, and Educational Achievement (DDEEA) to bring Mr. Stovall to Madison for three separate programs this year. The first of these took place in October, a two-part Leadership in the New Economy (LINE) event focused on mentorship and exposure to post-graduation opportunities for participants in the DDEEA scholars program. Nearly 250 people took part in the event, including UW–Madison scholars representing DDEA pipeline programs, UW alumni, community partners, and business leaders. “We are looking forward to bringing Mr. Stovall back to Madison in December and again this spring to share his expertise with the broader entrepreneurial community in Madison,” says D2P Director Andy Richards.
Entrepreneurons is a series focused on bringing the fundamentals of getting a new venture started to the UW–Madison community. These short programs bring together thought leaders from across the country and our own backyard to exchange perspectives on core topics ranging from identifying an opportunity to building a startup team to financing and beyond.
