NEW YORK-Successful entrepreneur, Charles E. Ramsey, is “giving back” by
returning to the classroom to teach Lubin School of Business students
how to determine if they’ve got what it takes to be an entrepreneur in
the high-tech arena. According to Ramsey, it’s all about attitude.
Ramsey co-founded Ramsey/Beirne, an executive search firm that focuses
on one industry– information technology (including software, hardware,
the Internet, networking) and conducts searches for senior managers only,
in 1987. The firm’s focus, drive and energetic staff have made it the
industry leader within the competitive niche of information technology
recruiting. The Ramsey/Beirne client list represents the best known
firms in high tech, including Novell, Dell, eBay, Excite, E*Trade and
Pace University’s Lubin School of Business launched its “Entrepreneur
in Residence” program in September 1998, to provide entrepreneurs-to-be
the chance to interact and learn from successful self-starters. The
program features individuals who have created, financed and managed new
business ventures. Three guest entrepreneurs per academic year visit
Lubin and share their knowledge with students and faculty.
Ramsey will interact with students on Pace University’s Pleasantville
and White Plains campuses. Based on his first-hand experience in growing
a company from the ground up, Ramsey will discuss what students need to
know to become an entrepreneur and how they can start a business in the
field of information technology.

City and Westchester County. Nearly 14,000 students are enrolled in
