Shared Passions.

My favorite part about CVC is the fact that you can have an engaging conversation about technology and entrepreneurship with anyone in the club. CVC has provided me with a platform to truly dive deep in topics that excite me, and at the same time, have a good time with amazing people. This club allows me to truly think about what I'd like to venture off into for my future life. I love technology and entrepreneurship, and CVC is at the perfect intersection of that - it's a special group.

Previously, George spent a year at Berkeley studying economics and doing consulting for sustainablity companies.

Projects:

Professional:

Professionally, I am excited about fintech specifically and cool startups in general. This summer, I had the great opportunity to spend a summer at EquityZen, a marketplace for pre-IPO investments and shareholder liquidity. There, I worked on the deal team and helped push out live deals for accredited investors. Prior to that, I was a student consultant for a group called BEACN at Berkeley, where I helped advise sustainability companies on big picture questions. In the future, I'd like to either build an enterprise of my own or be a part of team that is in the process of doing so.

Personal:

I love to run, read about startups, and cook breakfast foods

Personal Growth.

My favorite experience was presenting a project on construction technology to a professional in Venture Capital. This project provided me with the opportunity to develop my skills and present my work in a way I would never be able to do in class or on campus. CVC gives you exposure to industries and work that is traditionally not available to college students. It helps me develop professionally and as a person as every project is a unique challenge that I can take on alongside peers who are unbounded in their ambition and passion.
