Last week, as part of the SFS Graduate Career Center’s Jumpstart January, IBD Professor Dale Murphy moderated a conversation featuring four @georgetown_sfs alumni entrepreneurs. Thank you to Brendan Foo (MSFS ‘15) of Forward Risk and Intelligence, Josefina Urzaiz (MSFS ‘07) of @cielohammocks, Stephen Rodriguez (SSP ‘07) of One Defense, and Jeremy Tamanini (MSFS ‘09) of Dual Citizen for joining us.
Thank you to Andrea Durkin, founder & principal of Sparkplug LLC and @georgetownmsfs adjunct professor, for serving as the keynote speaker at our Global Business Fellows Welcome Dinner earlier this month. Andrea shared a wealth of knowledge about her time as a U.S. Government trade negotiator and took questions from the Fellows, a combined cohort of undergraduate students from @georgetown_sfs and @georgetownmcdonough. All three cohorts of Fellows (Classes of 2018, 2019 and 2020) also had an opportunity to get to know each other and network over dinner.
Professor Dale Murphy, @ann_yang (SFS '16) of @misfitjuicery, and @thearmandosoto (SFS '18) with Ted Leonsis at this year's Leonsis Prize Bark Tank Event last Tuesday. Ann Yang's Misfit Juicery won the Top Prize of $30,000 in 2016-2017 and Armando Soto's Edgies Poster Hangers received an $8,000 prize the same year. Proud to have this group representing the many @georgetown_sfs entrepreneurs.
