Hey BBC Mafia!
We just wanted to give you a quick update and a highlight of some of the members we have going on the trip. We will be out in San Francisco from March 7th to the 11th busy visiting startups and established giants in the bay area. But not too busy to try to meet with as many of you as possible! We are hosting a networking night at Vouch Insurance HQ to meet with as many of you out on the west coast as possible! RSVP here if you will be available from 6-8pm on Sunday March 8th. You can bring a friend who would also be interested in speaking with students. Drinks and food will be provided!
Here is a highlight of some of the members that will be there!

Alex is "building recruiting software, Outern, with 6 other students." His experience with startups has "solidified [his] interest in startups" and he knows that he "want[s] to work in the startup world. [He is] hoping that Business Builders’ journey to San Francisco will open [his] mind to new opportunities in the startup world as well as serve as an experience that will help [him] grow as an individual."

Luke wants "to understand where marketing fits into the equation in such a tech heavy area of the world. [His] background is in product marketing, and [he'd] like insight into how that role stays prevalent across San Francisco." On top of this, he has been heavily involved on campus with Nike's Project Move which uses consumer strategy to build a week long celebration of the diversity of movement at Ohio State. He also currently works in the startup community with Nafis Azad at Waker which helps companies build and launch products. In the past he has worked at Numerator as a Product Marketer. Luke has also launched Startup Studio for us which has been given our members the opportunity to get hands on experience with experts in many different fields.
