How to Start a Business - Young Bruin Alumni Panel

During the second week of July, the VC Fund was privileged to co-sponsor and host an entrepreneurship panel with the UCLA Young Alumni Professionals. And it was packed! The event, which drew a standing-room only crowd of 130 attendees to the James West Alumni Center, featured four young bruin entrepreneurs from the tech, education, and solar industries. Panelists addressed topics ranging from how they got their start and grew a business to the ways they've used their UCLA network to succeedboth before and after graduation.
"UCLA is #5 in the world for producing entrepreneurs."
