The bookstore opens at 7:15 a.m. and the free, public program will run from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m.

Leaders from the community and the University meet to share their thoughts on topical issues at the popular breakfasts. "The Ethics of Entrepreneurship" is the theme for this academic year. This topic links with the recent opening of FAME: The Fairfield University Accelerator and Mentoring Enterprise. FAME supports local innovation and economic development through the combined resources of Fairfield University, the Town of Fairfield, and the local business community.

The April 23 breakfast will be an opportunity to discuss problems that can arise for the growing entrepreneurial segment of our community. Issues to be discussed may include truth in fundraising, intellectual property, partner relationships in startups and consumer protection.

David Schmidt, Ph.D., director of Fairfield University's Program in Applied Ethics, will facilitate the discussion. Joining him will be Chris Huntley, Ph.D., faculty member of the Charles F. Dolan School of Business at Fairfield University, and Mike Roer, president of the Entrepreneurship Foundation and author of "Entrepreneurship." A light breakfast will be served.
