Show Notes

  • Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us about your background and how you came to be part of TechStars and this program at MetLife?
  • Topic 2 - In our previous shows, we’ve spoken to all of the founders and gotten their perspective. What were your early goals as the leader of this program, and what has surprised you throughout the process?
  • Topic 3 - Walk us through the stages of the program for these companies? It’s more than just, “Have an idea, go execute that idea.”
  • Topic 4 - You’ve been both a Founder/Entrepreneur and Attorney, so you’ve seen your fair share of ideas. How do you manage to know when you listen, when to give advice, and when to hold your tongue?
  • Topic 5 - What has been your perspective, as an outsider to the area, of the RTP/Triangle area in terms of culture, people, community, etc.?
  • Topic 6 - What happens next for all of these companies that we profiled, and when does the program get started again for Year 2?
