About the Millennium Fellow
I was the Campus Director for the first-ever Millennium Fellowship class at the University of Pennsylvania. Inspired by the MCN's vision to lift up university entrepreneurs, I created Strivehouse — the home for university founders to grow their startups every month. Strivehouse launched just a couple months ago, and we already have dozens of founders from top universities (such as Harvard, Penn, Columbia, Cornell, etc.). Our founders are working on amazing startups in the fields of healthtech, AI, drones, edtech, consumer goods, and much more. Strivehouse is always accepting new applicants, so if you're a university founder, please apply at strive.house. The MCN was one of my biggest inspirations to start Strivehouse, and I'm eternally grateful for my experience at Penn's first-ever Millennium Fellowship chapter.
