Nick tells his story of how the tight-knit Washington, D.C., tech community prepared him for his move to the competitive culture of Silicon Valley.
Layla al-Dorani, BSBA '07
Al-Dorani is using the skills she learned at Kogod to get her company Raw Me, a raw food and juice store, off the ground in Qatar. "I want to keep helping others, especially women and entrepreneurs, that's what I've always wanted to do."
Paradise believes there's a right person for every job. He paired this belief with the management and consulting skills he learned at Kogod to found Sysazzle, a national staffing and recruiting company. "If more people took the time to just answer questions when they could...the world would be a different place," he said.
Bridges started out in the finance world after Kogod. But when he felt his creativity waning, he struck out on his own, turning a hobby into a full-time photography business. "It's not a complete day unless I have worked 15 hours," he said.
