Athena Entrepreneurs Weekly Meetups with Claudia Polgar on Building a Venture as a Young Alum
In a recent meetup, investor and serial entrepreneur Vanessa Liu stopped by Athena to chat with us about opportunities in the care economy. On Thursday, October 14, recent alum Claudia Polgar, Founder and CEO of CheckPoint Health, will share how she leveraged resources on campus and beyond to launch a venture in the care economy. Join us as Claudia discusses the steps she took to build a digital health startup that helps family members better manage their loved one’s care.
Open to aspiring and emerging women and nonbinary entrepreneurs from Barnard and Columbia (current students). No RSVP is required!
Athena Entrepreneurs is a community of aspiring and emerging women and nonbinary entrepreneurs from Barnard and Columbia who gather regularly to further develop their ideas. We believe entrepreneurship is a powerful way to make change in the world. Here, you’ll find space to meet collaborators, work together and get support, and make the kind of impact you want to make.
- Work on your ventures — or just learn more about entrepreneurship. Athena’s Director of Applied Learning & Entrepreneurship and Athena’s Entrepreneur-In-Residence are here to help.
- Connect with our guests — experienced entrepreneurs, investors, and more — who drop by to share tips and insights from their own entrepreneurial journey and stick around afterward for one-on-one conversations with students. Visit our website to see who our fall 2021 guests are.
No registration is required, so drop by for one or all — it’s up to you!
