USC Marshall Greif Incubator to hold exclusive Digital Mentor Series with incubator founders
The University of Southern California (USC) Marshall Greif Incubator will hold an exclusive webinar series on digital mentorship for the benefit of founders in the incubator program.
From July 1-2, the Digital Mentor Series will gather leading executives, entrepreneurs, and members of the media to present insights and provide valuable feedback to an exclusive audience of USC Marshall’s Greif Incubator founders.
Attendees will be presented with a host of insightful thought leaders in business and the media, including:
- Jonathan Greechan, co-founder of the Founder Institute, the world’s largest pre-seed startup accelerator
- Sebastian Vidal, CEO at Parallel18
- Barbara Shannon, Founder of the CEO Board — ATHENA
- Adam Christensen, Vice President, Global Head of Marketing, Brand and Communications at Ingram Micro Cloud
- Andrew Wight, science journalist and Forbes contributor
- Lauren Cascio, Co-Founder at Abartys Health
- Amyn Gillani, CEO at Talos Digital
- Sam Corcos, CEO of Levels
- Peter Andringa, Principal at Publicize
- David Dorr, Co-Founder at Coro Global
With a lineup that includes the co-founder of the world’s largest pre-seed startup accelerator (Greechan), the CEO of Puerto Rico’s government-backed accelerator (Vidal), and a Forbes “30 Under 30” in Healthcare finalist (Cascio), students and alumni of USC will learn from some of the brightest in the business.
With 11 years under its belt, the Founder Institute operates across 185 + cities and has localized into nine languages while the Founder Institute Alumni have raised over $950 million and are worth an estimated $20 billion.
In its much shorter lifespan, Puerto Rico-based Parallel18 has accelerated over 200 startups from over 10 countries and its alumni have raised over $95 million.
Abartys Health was a graduate of Parallel18, and according to Cascio, going through the accelerator “was amazing,” because the startup gained a lot of exposure and networking.
Shannon teaches CEOs and entrepreneurs the essential practices for leading a values based business, attracting and keeping top talent, and improving personal and team performance for optimal growth while Corcos is a serial entrepreneur and author with expertise across many fields.
And Christensen has been instrumental in the growth and visibility of big name companies like IBM, PayPal, and now Ingram Micro Cloud.
The USC Marshall Greif Incubator accelerates the development of the University of Southern California’s top student and alumni entrepreneurs through experiential education, mentorship and community.
The Incubator, supported by the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at USC’s Marshall School takes founders from feasibility and development work, on to customers, a tested business model, getting distribution, building a team, bootstrapping and investment preparation.
