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 the 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, Crocs 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.
