Phil Weiser is Colorado’s newly elected AG and comes with an unusual background for an AG, but a fitting background for Colorado. In the past election, Colorado chose a successful entrepreneur—Jared Polis—as its governor, succeeding another entrepreneur, John Hickenlooper. For attorney general, Colorado elected Phil Weiser, former dean of the University of Colorado Law School, former deputy assistant attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice under President Obama, former law clerk to Supreme Court Justices White and Ginsburg, and a leader in Colorado’s entrepreneurial community. Over the last 20 years, Phil has founded the Silicon Flatirons Center at CU, the Blackstone Entrepreneurs Network, Startup Colorado, and the Governmental Entrepreneurial Leadership Accelerator. In this talk, Phil will explain what it means to bring an innovative mindset to the Attorney General’s Office, tying in his prior leadership experience, his scholarship on this topic, and his plans for the AG’s office.
