Entrepreneurship News and Events
Last night I had the privilege of sharing a meal with a special guest of the UC Davis Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Kat Taylor. Kat and her husband, Tom Steyer, are renowned philanthropists and social justice activists in California. In addition to founding the hugely successful venture capital firm Farallon Capital, they are avid entrepreneurs and funders of numerous socially motivated endeavors. Examples include the California Beneficial State Bank, One PacificCoast Bank, TomKat Ranch Educational Foundation and TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy at Stanford.
Scrumpt, our most recent Big Bang! Business Competition winner, is among USA Today’s 10 best new business ideas from university entrepreneurs. Scrumpt offers low-cost, healthy lunches and snacks delivered to families of elementary school children.
