Advice From Bates Entrepreneurs: Find A Need, Talk To Customers, And Get A Return


I recently returned back to my alma mater, Bates College, to share some perspectives about entrepreneurship based on my experiences covering healthcare, DTC, and retail at Google. It was such a pleasure to share the stage with two phenomenal women (Julia Sleeper of Tree Street Youth, Mbali Ndlovu of Lukafit) and Chris Barbin, a serial entrepreneur in Silicon Valley who served as our moderator.

During my senior year of college, I co-launched the Bobcat Ventures Competition with an all-star team. The winners of the competition had their pitch funded.

This year, I’ll be mentoring students starting their ventures. In the coming spring, when the ideas have more shape to them, I’ll also be a judge for the competition! I love coming back to campus and seeing how impressive the students of today are. They’re ushering in a whole new world.
