  • February 2013: more good results coming in

    Over 90% of last semester's students gave Marketing and High-Tech Ventures the highest possible student evaluation scores. And the trend continues: this spring semester, 100% of responding students gave their course and their instructor the highest possible grade.

    It's about having and showing respect for different skills and experiences. Bringing together top-notch engineering and marketing people, supporting them well, and giving them room to work their magic is one of the greatest experiences one can have in business.
  • January 2013: another happy customer

    "You were GREAT as our liaison! GREAT! It was wonderful that you took the time to meet with us regularly and give feedback and advice. That was something that I could hold over all the other groups' heads. As a mentor for the NVC, you were PERFECT! I couldn't have asked for a better person to teach us how to give a pitch. I really wish that I could do it all over again."

  • December 2012:
