#makerfairenova is June 2 @georgemasonu . Come
explore, learn, and create. meet new and innovative people. This is an opportunity to peak into the future and explore tradition at the same time, to let your mind and heart imagine what if.... #whatif... working on programs such as this and working with teams like @nova_labs is why I work in #highereducation
.
.
Grab some friends and family and take a walk into a fantastic experience together on Sunday June 2 2019
.
.
It is not common for a center for #innovation and #entrepreneurship at a #businessschool to have a 6,000 person #makerfaire as one of its major programs, but who in their right minds wants a common entrepreneurship center? (I’ll stop typing at this point)

#billiondollarwoman ! #marymeeker, the top #Internet analayst since the whole industry was spawned, has raised $1.25 billion dollars for an internet fund; she has launched #bondcapital after leaving @kleiner_perkins
.
.
#finance #privateinvesting #venturecapital #privateequity are industries that still lag others when it comes to diversity and accessibility; this is a topic we discuss in our entrepreneurship classes - we refer to it as the #truth about #entrepreneurship
.
.
I’ve been reading Mary’s #internettrends report since #meeker started writing it at #morganstanley ; this latest milestone for her is well deserved and shows the ability of #talent to create its own path in today’s economy #hardworkworks #vcfund @ Bethesda, Maryland
