The Institute for Entrepreneurship in the College of Business at CSU has found a new managing director, the university announced Friday.
Charisse McAuliffe, the director of marketing at Fort Collins-based VanDyne SuperTurbo, will assume the role May 1.
“Charisse brings a wealth of knowledge as a former entrepreneur engaged in the green economy and extensive expertise in communication, marketing and entrepreneurship,” said Dawn DeTienne, faculty director for the Institute for Entrepreneurship.

VanDyne SuperTurbo is developing what it calls a SuperTurbo for the automotive market and heavy-duty engine manufacturers.

Previously, McAuliffe was the founder and CEO of GenGreen LLC, which claims to have assembled the largest database of screened environmental and healthy living businesses and resources in North America. She was also the “Green Living” columnist for The Coloradoan.

The Institute for Entrepreneurship helps train would-be entrepreneurs. McAuliffe will oversee program management, student engagement, and marketing and public relations, among other areas.
