My work with IDEA [as a venture coach] is very organic. It’s not like a class, it’s more about conversations. You learn a lot from seeing the venture entrepreneurs at work. Seeing young undergraduates have the courage to pitch in front of a whole investing committee—that’s something I take pride in. Teaching them how to do that is pretty amazing.Pedro Gomes, GCBA’16, MBA’18
