WHO:

Born and raised in Venezuela, GABE GONZALEZ moved to Raleigh to study entrepreneurship at NC State. Today, he manages the NC State Entrepreneurship Clinic, a program that immerses students in an entrepreneurial ecosystem. Much like a medical student observing and learning from a surgeon in an operating room, clinicians observe and learn from startup founders. The Clinic’s mission is to produce the highest quality, entrepreneurially-minded students with the skills to make a big impact.

WARNER UNDERWOOD is the Operations Manager of SEAL SwimSafe, a start-up in the Triangle whose mission is to eradicate drowning as the leading cause of preventable death in children. Prior to the start-up world, Warner worked at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in admissions, the Chancellor’s Science Scholars Office, and The Shuford Program in Entrepreneurship. A die hard Tar Heel and graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill with a BA in English and minor in Entrepreneurship, Warner thrives on taking an idea and finding systems that make it scalable and sustainable.

WHO:

KHUSHBU MADHIWALA is a recent graduate of NC State and the founder of Sudsy.
