Student Breakfast with Neal Dempsey

November 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Neal Dempsey is a partner at Bay Area Partners investment firm, responsible for growing over 100 companies in the Silicon Valley.  Although he and his wife, Jan, are based in Northern California, they are both UW alumni who make frequent visits to campus and are enormous supporters of UW’s growth and innovation.

Neal loves to mentor students and will visit with Honors students over at our bi-annual breakfast event. During his last visit, Neal encouraged students to take more risks as often as possible, saying: “Especially if you’ve spent your life doing everything right, it’s important to learn how to fail. You won’t enjoy it! But you’ve got to do it or you’re probably not challenging yourself enough. The world needs you to keep trying. Fail! Then pick yourself up and figure out what to do, next.”

Registration for this event will open after the start of fall quarter. Honors students will be invited directly and there are limited spots, so be on the lookout for this event listing in your weekly emails from uwhonors@uw.edu.
