TAMPA — On Tuesday, Jan. 23, The University of Tampa will welcome entrepreneur, investor, bestselling author and tech media personality Randi Zuckerberg as part of the Lowth Entrepreneurship Center’s Today’s Entrepreneurial Women speaker series.
The program, which will be held in Plant Hall, Fletcher Lounge, will run from 1–2 p.m., followed by a networking reception from 2–3 p.m. The program will be moderated by Rebecca White, director of UT’s Lowth Entrepreneurship Center.
Zuckerberg is the founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media, developing technology, content and live events all with the mission of putting intelligent, tech-savvy, entrepreneurial women of all ages at the center of pop culture and media.
A Harvard University graduate, Zuckerberg hosts a weekly business talk radio show, Dot Complicated, on SiriusXM. She has two TV shows currently on air: DOT, which airs on NBC Universal Kids and is the winner of Kidscreen’s Best New Preschool Series, and American Dreams, which is on HSN and highlights entrepreneurs around the country. She is the best-selling author of Dot Complicated, Dot and, most recently, Missy President.
Zuckerberg travels the world, speaking about technology, entrepreneurship, her time as an early employee at Facebook, leading major marketing initiatives in the company’s formative years, and, shockingly, how to unplug.
Admission for UT students is a $5 refundable deposit (free for UT faculty and staff with registration). General admission is $25 and includes a copy of Dot Complicated, and corporate sponsorships are available for $500 and include four tickets and four copies of Dot Complicated.
