New free market think tanks are conceived nearly every day, an idea comes to mind, and an entrepreneur gets to work making that dream a reality. But what does it really take to start and grow a free market think tank? How long does it take? How do you earn those first dollars? How do you start building a track record? In this new webinar series we'll sit down with think tank founders and learn what those first few years really look like. We'll interview think tank entrepreneurs from think tanks ranging from just a few months, to several years and across the globe to get their perspective on what it took to run their think tank. This webinar series will provide honest insight into the life of a think tank founder, and new founders as well as established think tank leaders will have the chance to join the discussion about how best to achieve impact, reach sustainability and start achieving your mission. First up, we'll interview Connor Boyack, founder of the Libertas Institute in Utah founded in 2011. Connor Boyack founded Libertas Institute in 2011 and serves as its president. Previous to Libertas, Connor served as director of the Utah Tenth Amendment Center. He is the author of several books along with hundreds of columns and articles championing individual liberty. A California native and Brigham Young University graduate, Connor currently resides in Lehi, Utah, with his wife and two children.
