Wow. The launch of the Stanford Entrepreneurship Network (SEN) went even better than we could have hoped! On October 10, about 600 people gathered to hear Tesla Motors give an absolutely fascinating presentation about the journey to build a car company in Silicon Valley, starting with two guys who knew nothing about the car business. It was standing room only, and when Martin Eberhard, Co-Founder and President of Technology, finished, hardly anyone moved. He was riveting.
Afterward, people filed into a “trade show” reception to learn about the various entrepreneurship groups on campus. A lot of new students signed up to join the SEN mailing list and were thrilled to find out there are so many options on campus.
