Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award Luncheon

Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award

Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award Luncheon

Colorado Springs is home to world-class entrepreneurs, both past and present. In 2009, the UCCS College of Business Alumni Association began honoring one individual each year with the Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award. The annual event, long-known as the LEA luncheon, is a well-established tradition in Colorado Springs. The list of past LEA winners is a showcase of those who have transformed the local economic landscape.

Bringing attention to the legacy of business innovation and looking forward to the future of this thriving city is central to the mission and vision of the UCCS College of Business, and this event is the premier expression of our deep engagement with the wider community.
