A sincere interest in entrepreneurship has guided the early years of my career and continues to shape my personal, professional, and academic pursuits. I began my career working in e-commerce and software before moving abroad to understand peer-to-peer microlending and crowdfunding in Latin America. Most recently, I led business development for BCycle, a bike share company and division of Trek Bicycle. These experiences taught me valuable lessons in business strategy and development and inspired me to pursue my MBA. Through the Fellowship program, I hope to further my understanding of how product innovation and business strategy can be applied to scale companies large and small. I am thrilled to join the 2019 cohort and look forward to an exciting year of learning and growth alongside my peers.
