Sunnyvale, CA, USA
I first delved into my passion for entrepreneurship while still at Darden, working in the Incubator the summer after graduation with a classmate, then dabbling in it on the side afterwards. In January, I made the leap to commit full-time to getting my own tech startup off the ground and was able to hedge some of that risk by using Darden's work space at the Plug & Play Tech Accelerator as my HQ and gateway into Silicon Valley. Since then, I found a partner, built a business, shut down the business, and am now exploring other entrepreneurial opportunities as well as positions at some more established companies. Darden has given me the confidence to explore many different paths including the challenging yet thrilling role of entrepreneur, and I've found the skills I've learned and relationships I've built from Darden to be invaluable on my journey.
