Entrepreneurs Connection Venture Capitalist Speaker Session

ec october 6 event

Join us for the Entrepreneurs Connection kickoff event this fall! We are hosting a panel of speakers that are leaders in the business world. Would you believe that one of these leaders have innovated "multi-touch" that we use on our phones/ tablets everyday?

Our four speakers include Sunir Kapoor (executive and entrepreneur), Alpesh Amin (Investment Director at Atlantic Bridge Capital), Nimish Mehta (Founder and CEO of LumenData), and Gary Jinks (President of the GLJ Group and Managing Director of South Valley Angels). Each of them will be highlighting the reasons why start ups fail and how entrepreneurs and MBA students can avoid these pitfalls. 

This is a great opportunity to network and learn from a group of individuals that have a wide array of business experience in various industries. Refreshments will be served!
