As I previously wrote, a couple months ago I participated in a great event at NYU Stern called the Entrepreneur’s Roundtable. I had meant to write more about it a while back, but I just discovered a great summary by the school newspaper.
While I know many of the entrepreneurs at Stern, I met a few new folks who either have or are currently starting very impressive companies. It was truly impressive to hear my peers’ stories. While all impressive in their own ways, one that struck me was first year MBA Linz Shelton who once got the UCLA football team to help her assemble her Cuffz by Linz bags when she was out of money but had just secured a huge order from Nordstrom. Other stories included a classmate who had just raised angel funding at a several million dollar valuation, to others who had bootstrapped their businesses to profitable and growing organizations. I was honored to have taken part, and I’m equally honored to work beside such great people and entrepreneurs everyday at Stern.
