Erick Mueller
University of Colorado, Executive Director / Adjunct Professor

Erick has founded, invested in and sold ventures. Some have been successful. Some have been flaming failures. He's a teacher at CU and leads the Deming Center for Entrepreneurship. He loves adventures with his wife Jen, crazy kiddos Teagan and Tighe, pups Khaya and Auggie, a rabbit and two fish.

Olivia Pederson
Sustaio, Founder

Olivia is a seasoned creative & sustainability expert on a mission to use her expertise in human-centered design as a means to build an innovative circular movement. She founded Sustaio in 2020 on missions to make sustainability easy and empowering for all.

Is entrepreneurship different in rural communities vs urban? How can we create stronger bridges amongst all of Colorado's communities? We'll feature rural entrepreneurs and learn their stories, challenges and successes. And sprinkle in a little rural pizzazz!
