Dixie State College of Utah’s computer and technology program (CIT) and the Community Education Channel (CEC) continues their new established Technology and Entrepreneurship Event Series on Jan. 25, featuring a presentation on Tech Entrepreneurship by Steven G. Caplin, CEO of Steton Technology, at 12 p.m., in the Boeing Auditorium (Room 121) of the DSC Udvar-Hazy Business Building.
The forum is free to the public and will be available through live stream (accessible on mobile devices and desktop) at www.dixie.edu/live.
Prior to forming Steton, Caplin was successful in sales and business management at IBM, as well as in corporate accounting at Southland Financial Corporation. Currently, Steton is deployed in over 85 countries and in 34 languages, and is used to measure quality, service, safety and brand delivery.
Caplin graduated Summa Cum Laude in Accounting from Southern Utah University and holds an MBA from the University of Texas, where he focused on high technology entrepreneurship and competitive corporate strategy. Caplin is involved in many community service activities and currently serves as Chair of the Dixie State College Board of Trustees. He also serves on the Dixie Regional Medical Center’s governing board.
According to DSC CIT Professor Eric Pedersen, the new series will introduce students and the public to a wide array of presenters who are successful entrepreneurs, developers, programmers, and designers who are coming to share what they feel is most relevant and important based on their experience.
He noted that the series is a great opportunity for anyone interested in tech entrepreneurship and development to learn from those who have been successful and who are willing to share their insights, experiences, and perspectives.
“One of the things that is really interesting in the delivery of the Technology and Entrepreneurship Events is that these events will be streamed live to mobile devices as well as be available to desktop computers and in person,” Pedersen said. “We are excited about the technical capability to deliver top quality events that are streamed live, available on demand after the event, as well as be a part of the in person experience.”
The new DSC Technology and Entrepreneurship Series will become a bi-monthly event held on Wednesdays during Dixie State’s 2012 spring semester.
