Russell Siegelman draws from seven years of high tech experience at Microsoft, his eleven years as a venture capitalist at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), and his many years in non-profit board service to help his students experience the art and science of evaluating and pursuing entrepreneurial opportunities. His goal is that he and his students both learn and have fun while working on entrepreneurial projects that they are passionate about, whether they be for-profit or social ventures. His current and ongoing activity as an angel investor and board member keeps him in touch with the entrepreneurial and investing in for-profit and nonprofit sectors. He brings this real-world knowledge and practical approach to developing business and social ventures.
