Event description

Description

Do you have a great idea for your club or for a startup but don’t know where to take it? Join us for our Entrepreneurship Skills Deep Dive where we show how you can take your ideas and develop it into something impactful during your H.S. years. We will be going over using the most effective skills in testing and launching an idea. Whether you want to launch your own tech app or create change within an existing organization, entrepreneurship and leadership skills are arguably two of the most sought out characteristics when applying to universities!

Get ahead of the curve and use your experiences now as a powerful springboard to launch your college application.

In this workshop, we will talk about how to:

  • Initiate and execute change within your club, school, or community
  • Validate your product, prototype, and create a minimum viable product (MVP)
  • Develop and showcase your leadership and creative skills
  • And translate these important attributes onto your college application

Afterwards, mix and mingle with our speakers who have spent their lives pursuing their passion through designing, creating, and innovating in the startup world.

So what are you waiting for?! Come and see how you can launch your next big idea! Parents, educators, and students are all welcome.

Pizza and refreshments will be provided!

Jonah Moroh - Harvard University

Jonah hails from Chicago, Illinois and is currently pursuing a Social Studies degree with a focus on Economics from Harvard University. His path to Harvard was strenuous at best — as an early action applicant, he was deferred and ultimately waitlisted during the regular decision round. However, luck was on his side when he received a call from the admission’s department inviting him to join the freshman class in May of his senior year. Since his matriculation to Harvard, Jonah has developed a strong background in management consulting through his work with the Harvard College Consulting Group and the TAMID Group. He spent his last summer interning at the Israeli VC firm Arba Finance in Tel Aviv and forging connections in the fast-paced startup ecosystem. At Crimson, Jonah directs the Extracurricular and Leadership Consulting Division, which aims to help students develop their extracurricular profile and embark on passionate capstone projects. His goal is not only to aid students in their college applications, but to help help shape them into exemplary people both at college and beyond.

She has extensive volunteer experience, having worked as a volunteer teacher in Vietnam, as well as in refugee camps around the Middle East and Europe. She spent last summer studying at the MENA Summer Institute - Columbia’s Global Center in Amman, Jordan. Soraya has since founded a nonprofit organization called Karvan, which is creating a non-monetary economic system that connects citizens and refugees around the world through skill exchanges.
