Grace A. Tanner Center

Entrepreneurship and Human Values

The Grace A. Tanner Center and the SUU School of Business have partnered to sponsor two
guests each year in an Entrepreneurship and Human Values Speaker Series.

On November 6th, we welcomed Dallas Graham, a photographer, designer, writer, philanthropist,
speaker, artist, and founder of the Red Fred Project, which raised over $86,000 on Kickstarter.
Based in Salt Lake City, The Red Fred Project works with critically-ill children to tell their stories
and publish their own books. The goal is to share 50 stories from 50 children in 50 states in addition to facilitating local story collections.

John Carreyrou, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist with The Wall Street
Journal, will visit March 5th. In 2016, he received the George Polk Award in Journalism for
Financial Reporting for his investigation of Theranos, Inc. and its founder Elizabeth Holmes. His
book on the same topic, Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup, was released
in May 2018 with a film adaptation in the works directed by Adam McKay and starring Jennifer

Both of these speakers embody the connection between entrepreneurship, business, and
human values. All events are free and open to students and faculty, but spaces are limited for
the Lunch and Dialogue sessions so please register early.
