Episode 035 — Rei Wang On Why Most Mainstream Investors Ignore Student Entrepreneurs

Revenue & Finances

Joshua Davidson released this podcast


Imagine a student-run venture fund, backed by a prestigious venture capital firm, focused on supporting the nationwide community of student entrepreneurs.

Seems cool, right?

Here is the best part, you don’t need to imagine this. It already exists, and it is called the Dorm Room Fund, backed by First Round Capital.

We’re joined this week on #thePawdcast with the Director of the Dorm Room Fund, Rei Wang and discuss all things student entrepreneurship, investing, raising capital and education, wrapped into an incredible one and a half hour podcast of pure and practical bliss!

We discuss Rei’s upbringing, living in multiple countries, her career path from the early days of General Assembly, and joining the First Round and Dorm Room Fund team. We learn about students becoming entrepreneurs and the keys to a student’s success. We cover the insights that venture capital firms look for, and how to get noticed on an investor’s radar, especially in the perspective of the Dorm Room Fund.

With that said and without further ado, enjoy Episode 035 of #thePawdcast with the one, the only, Rei Wang!

PS: As promised on the show, here is a bonus picture of Rei with some dolphins!
