Schwab Charitable Philanthropy Speaker Series
Event: Unprecedented Times – Unprecedented Opportunities
November 4, 2010 Location: Haas School of Business
Featured Speaker:Mike Milken, Chairman, The Milken Institute
The Center for Nonprofit and Public Leadership hosted the event with sponsorships from the Milken Institute and Schwab Charitable. The event attracted over 200 attendees and was a huge success. Mike Milken has always believed the process of value creation is the same whether creating a new paradigm for medical research – Fortune magazine called him “The Man Who Changed Medicine” – pioneering innovative approaches to education or creating jobs by financing growing companies.
In each case, he tries to empower the most talented people and encourage them to pursue their passions. “It always involves more than just writing checks,” he says. “It takes an entrepreneurial approach.” In a dynamic multimedia presentation, Milken will weave together the “three great democratizations” of the 21st century: access to capital, to knowledge, and to health.
