DV is involved in the UC Berkeley HAAS School of Business as a mentor.
Every year DV takes on 8 mentees from
HAAS and offers free mentoring, connections,
advice and assistance.
Since 2008 DV has also worked with a range
of students helping them shape their ideas,
write business plans and prepare for presentations.
Here is what some of the past students
have said about us:
“Jon brings a tremendous amount of insight as an entrepreneurship coach. He helped our startup team navigate the early phases of the venture creation process, guiding us by asking the hard questions, identifying gaps, and consistently giving us honest and direct feedback throughout.”
Vince Wu, Student, University of California, Berkeley - Walter A. Haas School of Business
“Jon's hard learned lessons as an entrepreneur and his ability to provide honest and sincere feedback have been extremely valuable assets to my Entrepreneurship team at Haas and my learning experience as an Entrepreneur in training. Jon has enabled our team to approach entrepreneurship as it should: a tough battle in which only the smart and well prepared succeed. Thanks Jon!”
Abhijit Sawant, Software Development Manager / Principal Software Engineer, Wily Technology Division of CA
“Jon taught me a lot about being an entrepreneur. I highly recommend his book "So You Want to be an Entrepreneur?" to anyone who is thinking about being an entrepreneur.”
