This week I was back on the live talk radio show "The Lounge w/ Sincerely Syreeta" on WURD 96.1 FM PHILLY as a guest. The Lounge is the Millennial's guide to Pop Culture and News. The live talk radio interview is now an audio podcast episode and here's the WURD TV recording too.
Episode Description: "Friend to the show Gregory Nesmith returned to The Lounge for a more in-depth discussion. He's recently been announced as an Entrepreneurship Mentor and Teacher for Bridges to Wealth program in Philly public high schools. He and Syreeta discussed this recent endeavor and his mission to empower the Underdogs of Philly and beyond."
Plus, I share whether I'm going to stay in Philly or move back to NYC after I graduate. Let me know what you think about the city I picked!
In my previous email, I shared that UNderdogstuff posted open Wharton VIP Fellow positions (aka Internship) for interested University of Pennsylvania undergrad and grad students.
Here's the latest scoop! There were 47 applicants for the 23 participating startups. Seven of those 47 students picked UNderdogstuff Capital as one of their top choices. Next steps, interviews start this weekend, and hopefully, we will have two Fellows on the team by the end of next week.
And just in case you were wondering what a Wharton VIP Fellow is: “They are students with interest in working at an early stage venture. It is an opportunity for students to learn about startup life, be educated about critical concepts in venture creation, and apply skills learned in their classes to a specific project connected to a student-founded venture in Penn Wharton Entrepreneurship's Venture Initiation Program (VIP).”
The journey continues!
