About the Crosier Entrepreneurs from the Trenches Speaker Series
The Crosier Entrepreneurs from the Trenches Speaker Series is made possible by the support of Tuck (T'97) / Dartmouth ('87) alum and entrepreneur, Louis Crosier. 'Entrepreneurs From The Trenches' brings young entrepreneurs to campus to share their recently acquired skills with students.

Geared at leveraging entrepreneurship know-how across multiple generations of Tuck alumni, this series aims to cover the knowledge gap between current students and very experienced entrepreneurs visiting campus by discussing freshly acquired entrepreneurial expertise with recent entrepreneurs, no more than a few years removed from their own MBA experience.
