President Barry Glassner and ASLC President Xander Blair invite you to…

An Evening of Entrepreneurial Spirit, Social Responsibility and Radical Business Philosophy with Jerry Greenfield Co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc.

Jerry Greenfield and his long-time friend and business partner Ben Cohen are the men behind one of the most talked-about, and least conventional, success stories in American business. Co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc., Greenfield has helped to build a store front venture into a $300 million ice cream empire by making social responsibility and creative management strengths instead of weaknesses.

With his best seller, Ben & Jerry’s Double-Dip: How to Run a Values-led Business and Make Money, Too (co-authored with Cohen), Greenfield created both a nuts-and-bolts guidebook to the promise and pitfalls of “values-led” business, and an inspiring wake-up call about the growing international influence of the “socially conscious” or “mission driven” corporation. (Ben & Jerry’s Double-Dip: How to Run a Values-led Business and Make Money, Too will be available for purchase from the Lewis & Clark Bookstore and at the ice cream social following Mr. Greenfield’s presentation.)

Bringing all of this to life at the lecture podium, Greenfield’s presentation delivers a rousing tribute to America’s entrepreneurial spirit, full of anecdotes and radical business philosophy. It also addresses the great sense of fun that is the company’s hallmark, illustrated with the serving of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for the entire audience.

Free Ice Cream Social to follow in Stamm.

Presented by the President’s Office, ASLC, and Student Activities.
