In addition to teaching appointments in both Cornell’s College of Business and College of Engineering, he is the Managing Director at eLab and the Director of Hardware Entrepreneurship at REV, among several other active engagements. He shares his expertise with us via an interactive, nuts and bolts lesson on how to prepare and deliver a pitch to investors.

Pitch competition eligibility: Startups/ideas can be in any area with a focus on technology, and teams must be composed primarily of grad students. Teams selected to pitch will be notified, with preference given to early-stage ideas and submissions from non-MBA students. More details will be provided later.
