Tracy Ericson MBA 2010
"Being able to pick up the phone and talk with peers in any given industry, and get insights is priceless. For example, in community development we do socially conscious venture capital investing, or work with community development venture capital funds. At the end of the day it’s a private equity investment, and so to be able to connect with people who work in the mainstream private equity world and get a handle on how they think about things is great. Being able to mutually educate each other is important."
