I embarked on a late January VC Trek shortly after learning that I was chosen to serve as a co-chair of the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Group. This revelation changed my outlook on the Trek: I became EVEN MORE aware of the contributions made by the fearless second year co-chairs, who worked relentlessly to come up with an astonishing experience.
While business school might not seem like the most romantic place on earth, Chicago Booth is full of surprises. Looking back at this week at Booth, I got to participate in two stellar events that turned my Valentine’s week into the most memorable to date.
One of the hallmarks of your Booth Experience will be involvement in clubs and groups on campus. Some are career-oriented, others have an athletic flavor, and further more may pique a special interest of yours. In this guest post, 2Y student Chun Ying Wang reflects on her time as a member and eventual co-chair of BoothEd, a group who’s mission is to further the professional and personal interests of Chicago Booth students in the education sector.
“Do you desire the fire of a business battle royale? A spectacular clash of Booth smarts, charismas, and egos? Come and see the struggle, the stakes, the glories of victory, and the agonies of defeat, the names of the winners, and the shame of the losers, and see our school’s champions of venture capital chosen to go and dominate every other school in the world!”
You do not get an email like this everyday, but when you do, the game is on! This is what happened a couple weeks ago when I participated at the Energy Foundry Venture Capital Investment Competition (VCIC).
A strong finance foundation combined with nerding out on tech – at Booth – one can have the best of the both worlds. Let tomorrow’s bankers tell you why being on the cusp of technology is so important these days.
