Working your way through a room full of ambitious Bay Area startup founders and funders could be an intimidating experience—unless, of course, the room is filled with fellow members of the warm and welcoming Dartmouth community.
The 2016 Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum in San Francisco on Sept. 9 brought together more than 400 members of the Dartmouth entrepreneurial community, from leaders of some of the largest tech firms in the world, to students and young alumni eager to learn from those who paved a silicon path before them.
“This forum is all about the Dartmouth community,” says Jeff Crowe ’78 of Norwest Venture Partners. He created the forum four years ago to bring together Dartmouth entrepreneurs in the Bay Area. “It’s a high-quality entrepreneurship event melded with a Dartmouth reunion,” he says. Since the event’s inception, it has doubled in size, with 428 people from the Bay Area and across the country attending in 2016.
