Day 2 - Undergrad Panel and Entrepreneurship Mixer

Two days down. The Undergraduate Entrepreneurship Panel featured three great speakers and the Entrepreneurship Mixer at Tyler's drew quite a crowd.

The undergrad panel in Griffith Film Theater featured three current or former students from Duke (listed left to right from photo):
  • Breck Yunits, Trinity '07 - co-founder and CEO of SeeMeWin.com
The three provided valuable insight into their experiences founding and running start-up companies while students, fielding questions about protecting ideas, NOT writing a business plan (at least initially), maintaining passion and energy when growing the company, and how Duke prepared them for their current leadership roles.

The Entrepreneurship Mixer was held at Tyler's Taproom at the American Tobacco Complex in Downtown Durham. Week attendees snacked on finger-food, had a few drinks, and had even more laughs while chatting about business, Duke, the Triangle, the eWeek at Duke events, and more.

Tomorrow is a big day full of events - the High School Pitch Event, the MBA Entrepreneurship Panel, Venture Capital Speed Dating, and the Keynote Speaker, Ernest Mario, PhD.

See you tomorrow!
