Danielle Weinblatt speaks in Dyson Seminar Series
The first speaker of the semester was Danielle Weinblatt ’05 AEM, CEO and Founder of Take The Interview.
After couple of years of doing near 100 hour work weeks in investment banking Danielle decided to head back to school for an MBA to see if she could provide “value” in society. After doing a Silicon Valley immersion program she opted to – after encouragement from a professor – drop out of Harvard Business School to start her technology company. She just closed on 2.6 million in VC money bringing her total to $4 million. The company now boast 20 employees that she is excited every day to work with.
E@D recorded the event put on by Dyson Diversity Program. Normally we would only post sections of a video BUT Danielle rocked the seminar with humor, humility and wisdom throughout the session. So we’ve decided to post the whole presentation. Enjoy.
