About this event

Today, Diana is a successful entrepreneur, having founded and sold a number of ventures, and a Senior Fellow at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the largest non-profit in the world dedicated to entrepreneurship and education. Diana draws on her experience as a founder, investor, and academic to design and implement curriculum in educational institutions and the private sector.
A sought out public speaker and writer, Diana has advised startup founders and Fortune 500 executives on her methodology for customer-focused innovation.
Diana lives in Columbia, Missouri with her high school sweetheart/husband, Jason, and their awesome son True.
