After his exit from Stephens, Dale Dawson turned his focus to fundraising for the new Sonrise High School and began working to create the first Opportunity International microfinance bank in Rwanda. In doing so, he was “catching the wave” of other Arkansans and Arkansas companies taking an interest in this Maryland-sized country nestled in the mountains of central Africa.
Dale Dawson, an investment banker and entrepreneur who founded Bridge2Rwanda, will be the keynote speaker at this year's Arkansas Business 40 Under 40 luncheon June 14 at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Little Rock.
The Barefoot Walk with American Idol Kris Allen begins at 3 p.m. today (April 8) at the Student Center courtyard of the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. Around 1,150 free tickets are available.
