As a result of the program,
0:10
have there been any new business ideas that you guys have pursued, or
0:14
seen other classmates pursue? >> I’ve held several medical patents for
0:19
devices over the last several years.
0:22
And really never had the time or really the knowledge to be able to take
0:27
it to the next level to bring these devices to market.
0:30
And as a result of some of the classes I’ve taken and, again,
0:33
relationships with classmates, we’ve actually developed this new venture to be
0:38
able to bring these devices to the market, which I think would benefit a great
0:43
number of people. >> My true passion is helping people to
0:46
tell their stories.
0:48
Now that the program is over, having the skills that are needed to start a podcast,
0:54
whether it is at Columbia Business School or outside of Columbia Business School,
0:58
I have the actual knowledge of what it takes to launch something like this and
1:03
make it successful. >> Painting is something that I’ve always
1:06
loved and came into business school and thought,
1:08
I don’t really want to talk about this painting stuff with these business people.
1:12
And everyone was so supportive and encouraging and
1:15
told me, actually inspired me to sell these things,
1:18
that someone would actually want to hang on their walls.
1:20
So it seems that some people do.
1:22
It’s been exciting to see that come to life through school.
