Jerry will be speaking in Professor Neupert’s Entrepreneurship class, room 1110 at noon on October 17th. Guests to the class are welcome. You won’t want to miss hearing about Jerry’s experiences and how he became so successful.
Jerry will tell a rags to riches story that started with a family tragedy in his teen years. He experienced an amazing sequence of life changing events in his early adult years that eventually led him to use his entrepreneurial instincts to start Semi Dice, Inc.
Semi Dice has reported a net profit for thirty-six straight years in a high risk, high technology niche industry. Once one of nine competitors, the industry has survived five recessions, the oil shortage of 1979, home mortgage interest rates of 18%, interest rates of 14% and the military spending drop after the Reagan years. Semi Dice is now the largest of the remaining three suppliers of semiconductor dice devices to the hybrid microelectronic circuit industry. Since 2004 the company has doubled sales and since 2008 company employment has risen 15% and is more profitable than ever before.
