I met Ravya Taghavi of Pixel and Type at Smith College while volunteering for the University’s Draper Business Plan Competition ‘Shark Tank’ coaching sessions.  Ravya is an entrepreneur who has worked with startups, universities, and financial professionals.  She even helped to develop the Center for Women and Financial Independence at Smith College, where the Draper Competition was born. We discussed the importance of supporting student entrepreneurs, the benefits of Lean LaunchPad, and her work helping financial advisors market and grow their practices.
