2. I went to the presentation about the two students that created their own companies. One was about finding a solution to food waste with reduced prices for older goods and the other was a non-profit consulting firm. The thing I learned from the presentation was that if you are interested in something, try to find how your skills will apply to what it is.
2. I attended the session with two senior GW students who created their own startup non-profit companies. I learned that service starts with seeing a specific need within your community is the first step to giving back to your community.
I attended the session where the GW seniors spoke about their start up non profits. I learned how one individual's passion about a certain issue can lead to incredible things, so long as the person has enough drive. It inspired me to find areas of service I am passionate about.
2) I attended the business presentation where two GW students created a non-profit start-up. I primarily learned how you can turn a passion into a business idea which supports a larger community.
2) I went to the session that was led by two GWU seniors who had launched their own startup non-profit companies. The largest takeaway from their presentations I had was that experience, whether it be at a nonprofit, large or small firm, or volunteer work, can give you important experience and valuable new connections. Experience at any company is valuable.
2. I attended the discussion led by two seniors and they talked about the companies they both started. Something that stood out to me was the company Last Call. She worked from a problem she saw in our community and then created a company in order to fix it. It was very inspirational.
2. I attended the business education presentation with two GW students who created startup non-profit companies. I learned a great deal about how passions and interests can lead to a larger picture and a company that serves the community. I also learned the importance of how passions, interests, and morals can help one determine who they are and help them be bigger than themselves in community-engaged situations.
2)I attended the session with two upperclassmen who were able to start up non-profit start-ups and have become successful in the past two years. This panel was interesting and put a better picture as to what needs to be done in order to start up your own business. I learned that although non-profits are predominantly service work, the people at the board of directors are usually CEO's of other companies, meaning that through service you can network and meet extremely successful people.
2. I attended the session featuring two seniors who started their own organizations/companies. Something that really stood out to me and was mentioned many times was that while doing service and non-profit work is helpful to those you are serving, it can also be equally beneficial to you.
2. I attended the business discussion with two senior GW students who created startup non-profit companies. I learned a lot about how one's passion can translate into a bigger idea and a company that works to help others. I also learned how important it is to be passionate and have a moral code that you stick to in order to define yourself.
