Starting at a Startup

Posted by Matt Ripkey on Dec 22, 2016 2:30:27 PM

Almost a year ago to the day, I was sitting in my apartment contemplating skipping a guest lecturer in my Venture Growth class.

It was one of those bitterly cold December evenings where it got a little too dark a little too quickly and my motivation to go listen to yet another guest speaker was unsurprisingly low. I had snacks; I had on sweatpants. The chances of me moving from the couch hovered around zero percent.

Luckily, a friend in the class far more studious than I convinced me to get off the couch and drag myself outside. I say "luckily" because—and I'm not being dramatic here—that lecture wound up being the most important of my college career.
