The Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence celebrated its 20th anniversary during its annual Summer Soiree last Tuesday. More than 300 guests, many of them entrepreneurs who were assisted in starting their businesses by the institute, mingled at Marty's Market in the Strip. Fresh summer foods prepared by the market's cafe staff and entertainment by the Zany Umbrella Circus created a festive mood for munching and mingling. Guests were greeted by Ann Dugan, executive director of the Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence, which is part of the Joseph M. Katz School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh. Joining Ms. Dugan were Charlie and Lori Lenzner, Richard and Lori Guttman, Brett and Jane Randall, Rob Brandegee, Jean Anne Hattler and Jeanna Lesker.
