One of the things I appreciate about the Venture Studio at Stanford GSB is that it’s student-driven. The project started after our research showed that entrepreneurial students needed space. We launched in a small basement, but now it’s a beautiful place of inspiration where there’s movement and life; everyone’s pursuing their entrepreneurial dreams.

I chose Stanford GSB to learn business skills in an environment where I would be surrounded by interesting people with whom I could relate and learn. Surrounded by amazing faculty and classmates who never let me settle for mediocrity, I learned not to shy away from ambitious and life-changing goals.
