Learning about the Frontier of Technology.

CVC has given me the chance to explore fields that I would never have the chance to learn about in a classroom. Most notably, this most recent semester I was able to work on a project where I was tasked with teaching a venture capitalist about Quantum Computing. This project allowed me to gain insight and knowledge about a field that very few people know about. CVC has been a great learning experience for me and I look forward to learning about many more industries while in this club.
