NO ENTREPRENEURSHIP BREAKFAST THIS YEAR
WELCOME TO LUIS MARTINEZ
NEW DIRECTOR FOR THE CENTER FOR INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP AT TRINITY UNIVERSITY!
SAN ANTONIO - In returning to Trinity University with a Harvard doctorate in chemistry and two patents, Luis Martinez '91 is building on strengths and expanding the scope of the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
As director of the refocused program, Martinez already has secured partnerships with San Antonio-based tech companies such as Geekdom and Rackspace and will continue to sponsor activities such as the 3-Day Startup for Trinity students and others to brainstorm the creation, production, and marketing of a product or service.
'We want to give everyone on campus the opportunity to engage and learn about the principles of entrepreneurship," he said. The center, he added, can function as the University's "front door" linking community business leaders with interns who are willing to work and learn. The door could swing the other way, too, offering students a bridge to employment options, career mentoring, and even inspiration.
NEW STUDENTS MOVE INTO ENTREPRENEURIAL DORM
Incoming first-year students with an interest in what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur signed up to live on a floor of Beze Residence Hall. Martinez, as well as former Trinity students, including Rackspace co-founder Pat Condon, joined Team Trinity to lift boxes and baggage in helping students in late August move into their home for the coming academic year.

Ahlburg. Standing in the back row, from left, are Nick Honegger '13, business and entrepreneurship; resident mentor Victor Vo; and Mitch Hagney '13, major in human communication and international relations with a concentration in environmental sciences and a minor in geosciences.
Zachary Rodriguez of Houston said he chose the Entrepreneur Floor because, "It's a good opportunity to be rooming with people who love the same thing."
Daniel House of Austin added that the entrepreneurial cohort would be a "good experience" for sharing ideas and for making a dream come true. "If you have a vision for something like Microsoft and can identify some capital, you can change the world."
