Why Tuck?

When I was accepted at Tuck I realized I had this six-month period where I could try anything. So I quit my job and teamed up with a friend to start an app that enables grocery shopping through smart phones. When I got here it amazed me that every benefit you get from a small community applies to entrepreneurial tracks. And then there’s the curriculum. I’m not only learning how to be a leader of a business, but also getting the foundation of entrepreneurship, like how to test your idea, pitch it, raise money, and set up operations. It’s empowered me to think beyond my preconceptions of what’s possible.
