MBA studentAn online platform for video book summaries prepared by the actual book authors. The intended focus is on best-selling business and trade publications.I have about ten years of experience in the education sector, starting with teaching and transitioning to for-profit startups in international education and ed tech.

I was lucky to be a ground-floor member of an Inc. 500 startup, where I did lots of cold calling and business development, which eventually evolved into sales team management. There, I also served in an intrapreneurial role, leading a team with a $1M budget in the US and China.

Also relevant are my skills in film production. I have significant film training and experience producing/directing short films.

Most recently, I have continued to do customer-facing work in sales and customer success at a SaaS startup in the media and ed tech space.
We would love to find team members with complementary skill sets (specifically, software engineering, product or project management, and digital marketing). However, we are open to hearing from anyone who is enthusiastic about education and online learning.I see technology as a means for improving human lives, serving customers more effectively, and achieving scalable social impact quicker. I am particularly interested in e-learning and the promise of personalized education (powered by technologies such as machine learning). I am deeply familiar with traditional and cloud-based video editing software, marketing automation systems, and sales CRMs. For what it's worth, I have also been involved with AR/VR projects and know the basics of 3D modeling.Patrick O'Neill:
17/09/2017 20:42:40jordan_sale@berkeley.eduJordan Salejordan_sale@berkeley.edu studentOffice buildings, restaurants, schools, and religious institutions are empty roughly 50% of the day. I'd like to figure out how to monetize more efficient space utilization. (Think using a synagogue as a homeless shelter, etc.)I have a background in digital marketing (most recently at a fintech startup). Since I joined the company when there were just 10 employees I also have experience in operations, logistics, product management, and strategy.A few different skills I believe would be useful initially: 1. front-end dev 2. partnership creation & sales 3. finance / excel modelingI'm definitely interested in thinking about how machine learning would be useful for creating better space utilization, especially in heavily dense areas.
17/09/2017 21:18:20rahul_tibrewal@berkeley.eduRahul studentI am a trained electronics & telecommunication engineer and have nearly five years of experience building industry-leading network management & software-defined networking web applications for Cisco.

In recent years, I have transitioned to a program management role at Cisco, helping it builds its intrapreneurial ecosystem.

My primary interest is in smart cities technologies.
Legal, Core EngineeringI am interested in (and engaged with a few) smart city-enablers - internet of things, artificial intelligence, blockchain, and other information & communication technologies.
MBA studentMy background is in economics and finance, more recently I have started my own real estate investment and development company, and have experience managing teams while working as a private consultant in the oil and gas industry. I have a strong skill set in financial modelling and market analysis, strategy and asset valuation. I have the ability to understand and interpret market dynamics and can always find the commercial relevance in situations. Most of all I can think laterally about issues and am very good at solving problems. I am also a very determined person so you will have my full energy, commitment and support. I have also advised a start-up from conception to a revenue generating business.I am hoping to join a teamI would like to explore ideas in computing, agricultural technology and biotechnology

Stanford has estimated that every minute spent in the operating room costs $15-20, NOT including the cost of staff. As some surgeries require long incisions that can take 40 minutes to two hours to suture up, I would like to build a device to cut down on the amount of time spent suturing in the operating room.
I have a background in clinical trial project management and medical device sales. I am familiar with the clinical environment, specifically the OR. I bring knowledge of a definitive clinical need, connections to surgeons who are interested and willing to work on this project, and knowledge of how to successfully market and sell a medical device.
I have a few engineers who are interested in working with me, but am always looking for other people who are passionate and have unique ideas to bring to the table. I am also looking for someone who is knowledgeable about creating a realistic business model and business plan, along with someone who has any experience working in MedTech IP, or has knowledge of reimbursement or regulatory processes.

A secure digital platform, backed by personalized machine learning, for patients with Lyme Disease to use to manage their health data, share data with their doctor and connect with their community. By combining self-reported symptoms and lifestyle data, with objective health data collected through wearable devices, we can identify and predict disease triggers.

I don't have any concrete idea yet.
I am a second year master student studying information systems at School of Information. I am a UX designer with 5 years' professional experience of visual design, international expertise in media campaigns and interactive storytelling, and front-end coding for prototyping. I've won several hackathons and design challenges and I can work under tight timelines and doing quick design iteration. I hope to bring design thinking process into the product design and development. My design portfolio is at:
engineering, marketing
VR/AR, gamification, voice recognition, mobile

My company, Quick Flash Technology, is developing manually controlled transition lenses to help frequent drivers and outdoor workers adjust shade of sunglasses to protect their eyes within 0.1second in any condition with e-tint technology.
I got my B.S Optical Engineering degree from University of Rochester. I started my own company in Rochester in 2015 and sold it after graduation. My new business idea of Quick Flash Technology won two business competitions. I have a team of 6 engineers working on this idea right now.
Integrated Circuit Design skills. Experience of designing microcontroller or solar cell battery. Experience of working in the eyeglasses field.

A rugged, low cost, portable scanner, enabling digital asset creation in low/no connectivity environments. Specifically, I see a market for this in Sub Saharan Africa where I encountered a business environment plagued with a high amount of paper transactions (which lead to information loss and/or extremely slow decision making).
A blend of venture finance and startup operations and growth strategy. Over the past two years, I've worked with startups in East Africa in full time roles, consulting engagements, and teaching at a Pan-African accelerator program.
While I have an idea (which would need significant engineering talent), I am happy to join an existing team that needs business talent - specifically a team with an emerging market or social impact focus.
I am very interesting in FinTech, EdTech, AgTech, and novel consumer access models.
