March 2, 2015

Marshal Neel, cofounder of Main Street Crowd, will discuss how organizing local communities around entrepreneurial endeavors can increase awareness, promote sustainability of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, and improve results, at an STC.UNM-sponsored talk this week.

Neel will speak from 8-9 a.m. March 4 at the UNM Science and Technology Park, 800 University Blvd. SE. Food will be served.

Neel is both a bank executive and an attorney and has a degree in human and community services. He will share his thoughts on how an understanding of human networks that support business development relates to the challenges faced by small business start-ups and existing businesses struggling to find capital.

He is co-founder of Main Street Crowd, an economic development platform for communities with a non-profit focus. Neel is also on the executive team of New Mission New Mexico, a national initiative to change the way in which we transition veterans from the military to civilian workforce and how we promote the entrepreneurial efforts of veterans.

Neel received his bachelor's degree from New Mexico State University and his law degree from the University of New Mexico School of Law.
