Today on Building Birmingham Together, I have Dr. Patrick J. Murphy. Dr Murphy is the Goodrich Chair, Professor and Director of Entrepreneurship at The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Collat School of business. He has 20 years of experience worldwide in entrepreneurial ventures, angel investing, and advising. If that does not keep him busy enough, he is also a published author in the Yale U. Press, Harvard Business Review, and many international journals. Dr. Murphy was brought to UAB to start the Entrepreneurship program which just launched last semester - during a pandemic no less. The program is already garnering national attention with 50 students enrolled after just one semester! We’re thrilled to see how Dr. Murphy’s work impacts the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the city and contributes to building Birmingham together!
