CU won’t flush away $25k

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:, , ,

Boulder venture capitalist Brad Feld has donated $25,000 to the University of Colorado for naming rights and a plaque on the second-floor men’s bathroom in the campus’ newly constructed technology hub.

It’s an offer that was flushed away by Feld’s alma mater, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, but C.U. officials took Feld up on the offer, specifying only that the donor’s plaque not be “inappropriate.”

The plaque that now hangs near the C.U. bathroom contains a piece of advice from Feld himself:

“The best ideas often come at inconvenient times. Don’t ever close your mind to them.”
