Ben Shephard ‘14, VP at the Silicon Valley Bank, will give a brief overview of the LEE and then lead a discussion and Q&A on VC funding trends. Join the webinar to learn more about our opportunities for students and alumni and see how you can get involved.

Peer-to-Peer Networking: We’ll facilitate group discussions so you can get advice from entrepreneurs facing similar challenges, exchange ideas and resources, and support each other’s journeys. To learn more, reach out to Carlos Mendes Neto ‘88 or Francis Doumet ‘11.

Expert Network Connections: Join us to connect with entrepreneurs and provide your insights to drive their businesses forward. We’ll match you based on your expertise, interests, and availability. No required time commitment and our focus areas are sales, scaling, raising capital and law, but we’re happy to involve professionals in any industry or function. For details, contact Sarit Henig ‘15 or Keith Kohler ‘93.

Investor and Angel Introductions: Help Lauder entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses. Open to alumni working in Venture Capital or experienced angel investors. You give us your preferences - making connections, giving feedback, sourcing investments, or more - and we’ll connect you with relevant Lauder entrepreneurs. Contact Ben Shephard ‘14, Stephen Dreskin ‘86, or Marina Jacobson ‘93.
