Rocky Mountain High
Posted by Victor Fleischer

Apologies for the light blogging lately.  As many Conglomerate readers already know, I've had a lot of great things going on lately, personally and professionally. 

It's official:  I will be joining the faculty of the University of Colorado School of Law.  I'm a very lucky man:  I recently became engaged to Miranda Perry, who joined the CU faculty earlier this year.  (It's true, I admit, that we met at a tax conference.  But don't believe the rumors that theImg_0117_2 Commissioner of the IRS will be administering the nuptials, or that Paul Caron will be live-blogging the ceremony.)  And now we get to start our life together in ridiculously cute Boulder.  How exciting!

UCLA has a wonderful institutional culture.  I've been treated well and made some very close friends.  I will miss everyone a lot.  But I'm looking forward to immersing myself in the Boulder culture, Kidscayman_lime_thumb1_1Crocs and all.

There's lots of exciting work being done by the Colorado faculty, and Boulder has an interesting technology & start-up culture that makes it a great fit for my interest in venture capital, private equity, and branding.  In addition to my Deals course and some sort of Venture Capital Law & Finance course, I plan to teach a seminar called something like "Entrepreneurship and Social Policy," where we will examine the phenomenon of start-ups with a social responsibility/sustainability/social branding angle, such as Boulder-area companies Crocs, Wild Oats, and Horizon Organic Dairy.  Should be fun.
