Success:Once a Startup, Always a Startup?

On Thursday, March 23, TIAA was the Platinum Sponsora special event hosted by the Paris Alumni Chapter, led byParis Chapter leadership Roberto Abramovich '02,TIAA Member Stacie Desplanques, TIAA Volunteer Bernadette Martin, TIAA Member Todd Kramer and Djalal Kassama:

"The Paris alumni chapter hosted our first business forum, focused on international startups, in Paris on the 23rd of March.The local team was on top! More than 70 people from over 20 different business schools came out to join us in central Paris, to learn about the experiences of three entrepreneurs who took the leap to expand beyond local boarders.There were a lot of good discussions after the presentations, during a very successful networking cocktail hour (the night guardhad to kick us out of the Columbia Center at 11:30pm!)."

It certainly sounds like the event was a blast, and we do hope that you'll join the next such event, our Spring Business Summit in Paris. We have only a handful of seats left open, so grab one now!
