Fireside Chat at the Venture Lab for Pivot Fellows

This past Friday The Venture Lab hosted a "Fireside Chat" featuring entrepreneurs in the lab Kyle Smitz, Patrick Flynn, Kevin Mahoney, and Nona Richardson.

The event was held for members of the Pivot Program and was followed by a Meet and Greet. It was a great event that allowed Pivot Fellows to learn about the entrepreneurial journey.

"The Georgetown Pivot Program is a new, non-credit-bearing certificate in business and entrepreneurship created specifically for formerly incarcerated individuals. Designed and delivered by Georgetown faculty, the Pivot Program is a one-year transition and re-entry program centered on a blend of academic work and supported employment."
