Role: Internal Relations Director
Jeremy is a first year-MBA student at the GSB focusing on commercializing artificial intelligence. Before coming to Stanford, Jeremy worked at Pearson launching products in the higher education space and mentored first-generation college students at America Needs You. He graduated from Northwestern University in 2011. When he’s not working on Cardinal Ventures, you’ll probably find him hiking or en route to a concert.
Last week, we had a conversation with Jeremy to learn more about him. Here are his responses to our questions:
- Can you explain your role in more detail? I work on building out the Cardinal Ventures resource database to streamline the work of the current cohort. I also focus on building out the Cardinal Ventures alumni network by integrating past cohorts into new and current programming.
- What is a major challenge you've faced as an entrepreneur/working with entrepreneurs? You don't know what you don't know. There's a sea of resources available, but sometimes people just don't know where to start. Decreasing that friction and ambiguity can accelerate the development of entrepreneurs and their ventures regardless of industry or experience.
- What is the coolest thing about working with Cardinal Ventures? Seeing the evolution of young, ambitious entrepreneurs from all walks of life and areas of expertise is the most rewarding and energizing part of the Cardinal Ventures community.
Jeremy's Fun Fact:
I was stuck on a Spanish island for 10 days and couldn't get back to school in London when the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010. Really the worst part about the experience was that I was charged late fees from the London School of Economics library since there was no way to get back in time to return a copy of a book I borrowed. Libraries will be libraries even in the event of a natural disaster, I guess.
