The event was created by Alex Quintana, BA’05, MSF’06, the chapter president, and a committee of alumni volunteers. They took advantage of the great community of Vanderbilt alumni entrepreneurs in New York that regularly meets to discuss their work. The panel format allowed them to talk about their companies with an audience interested in possible new career paths.
