Where: The Foundry – 557 E. Fordham Road, Floor 2, across from White Castle
The first of our weekly roundtable discussions will begin September 13. Come join us for pizza and a discussion on current events! Our first meeting will revolve around the recent article in the Financial Times entitled “Money, money, money: Silicon Valley speculation recalls dotcom mania.” Is there a current “bubble” and is it the the same as or different from the bubble of 2000? Come join us!

Getting Internships and Jobs with Startups
When: Wednesday, September 20 at 2:00 p.m.
Where: TBD
Mark your calendars for our first program of the year! This month the program will feature special guests Vadim and Sergi Revsin, who can help guide you successfully through your job and/or internship hunt with the next great startup. We all intuitively know that interviewing for an internship or a job with a startup is fundamentally different from interviewing with an investment bank. But what skills do you REALLY need? Come join us September 20 to find out! Please RSVP here.
