Blue Devil Weekend - Entrepreneurship - Handouts and Powerpoints

Hey everyone,

I know a lot of you were not able to attend Blue Devil Weekend.  For those of you unable to come - here are the handouts/powerpoints we had related to our entrepreneurship activities.

1) Top Entrepreneurship Activities at Duke - There are many different activities to possibly be involved in at Duke, and this powerpoint goes over some of the top entrepreneurship activities that you can choose from.
2) Academic Preview of Entrepreneurship - Professor Ronnie Chatterji talks through the Research Advantage and how it applies to entrepreneurship. 
3) Introduction to the Program for Entrepreneurs - The Program for Entrepreneurs is an intensive entrepreneurship program where students receive course credit for working on starting a company.  Students must apply for this program in advance. We accept 8 projects a year.  The kickoff event is July 20th and the final selection of projects is October 28th.

4) Career Panel for Entrepreneurship, Venture Capital, and Private Equity - We had a nice panel discussing entrepreneurship, venture capital and private equity.  Below is the link to the document we handed out, which includes the bios of the panlists, some recent startups that have come out of Fuqua, and a list of the many venture capital and private equity firms that have connections to Duke and North Carolina.

Let me know if you have any questions.
