Big Weekend at Kenan-Flagler

Posted by Eric. Its a good weekend to be an MBA student in Chapel Hill. First of all – it is 76 degrees, the sky is perfectly blue, and the air smells like Spring. SVCIC is happening right now.

There are teams from 8 leading business schools (including Kenan-Flagler) and an interesting mix of entrepreneurs and sustainability-focused VCs in town for the competition.

Kate – life sciences expert, same last name as Uncle Jesse from Full House. Jason – medical device guy, pitch artist, cellist. John – raised VC as an entrepreneur, way smarter than the rest of us. Me – tech wienie, trying not to mess it all up. Read More
