Our mission is to connect alumni and friends of the College of Business to the College and one another. With almost 5,000 of our alumni residing in Colorado, we also serve as a connection to the metropolitan Colorado Springs business community and current students and faculty.

A Celebration of Entrepreneurship
A decade of recognition for Colorado Springs' world-class entrepreneurs.
In 2009, the UCCS College of Business Alumni Association began honoring one individual each year with the Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award. The annual event, long-known as the LEA luncheon, is a well-established tradition in Colorado Springs.

Over 10 years later, the College of Business has expanded its annual event to present a second award - the Next Generation Entrepreneur award. The NGE award recognizes the contributions of those who inspire others with their vision, leadership and and whose influence is shaping what this great city will become. Together, we are recognizing and celebrating the legacies and opportunities of entrepreneurial leadership in the Pikes Peak region.
