Episcopal students attended the 2016 20th Annual Burkenroad Reports Investment Conference on April 22, 2016 sponsored by the Tulane University A.B. Freeman School of Business in New Orleans, LA. The conference spotlights companies found in the Burkenroad Small-Cap Mutual Fund and provides an opportunity for the companies to explain their direction and current status to a group of potential investors in attendance.
The students were allowed to participate with undergraduate and graduate Tulane students in attending multiple informational sessions by some of the leading small-cap companies in Louisiana, and the surrounding region. Using this opportunity, our students were able to look at different investment instruments, from mutual funds to commodity goods. The students from the Episcopal Entrepreneurship Class received a rare chance to meet and listen to CFOs, CEOs, and other high- profile positions of the companies that attended the conference.
This is the fourth year Episcopal students have attended the Burkenroad Conference, which was introduced to us by Patty and Carl Newton. We appreciate their ongoing support for entrepreneurial learning opportunities for our students.
