Meet Kevin Wang

Kevin WangKevin is one of TALENT's rising stars and definitely someone you should meet. In addition to winning second place in Power Pitch for Gravity Games Studio, Kevin recently received a Thiel Fellowship. The Thiel Fellowship is awarded to 20 entrepreneurs under the age of 20. There's a cash award ($100,000) and entrepreneurial support for developing a business. The catch: you don't go to college for two years.

Thiel Fellows work with outstanding mentors in Silicon Valley and have advantages few young entrepreneurs can claim.

On Monday, Nov. 4, 8-9 pm (CST) in Tellabs Studio we'll host Kevin for Monday Night Live. Learn about the Thiel Fellowship, how you can apply, what's involved and what Kevin is doing with his first year not going to UC Berkeley.

This will be awesome. It will also be webcast. From your computer: http://online.imsa.edu/talent   Enter as Guest. Passcode: talent

Last Call to meet Thiel Fellows

thiel fellowship meetingUnder 20?  Got a Big Idea? Join us at 1871 on Friday, Nov. 16 to meet and talk with representatives from the Thiel Foundation and Thiel Fellows. There are openings at 9 am, 1:30 pm, 3 pm and 4 pm. Sign up using EventBrite. This event is free.

Here's what this meeting is about:

The Thiel Fellows want this session to be as dynamic and interactive as possible. They will talk about the Fellowships (20 @ $100,000) and answer any questions people have about the program and application process. But they also really want to hear from the students -- about what you're working on, your big ideas, how you want to change the world. What's great is that people from the selection committee and existing Fellows will then be able to personally brainstorm additional ideas, applications or ways to improve presentation for everything from Fellowship applications to VC pitches to partnership meetings.
