I have always been the question asker: I want to know who, what, when, where, why and how as I learn about a new topic. And this habit is what has led to my entrepreneurial work in college. The UNC Kenan-Flagler Center for Entrepreneurial Studies Adams Apprenticeship has been exposing me to the idea that not all people follow defined paths for their careers.
My first morning in San Francisco, I shared a Lyft with Tracy Baldwin, CEO of RokketMed, a startup working on transparent pricing for medical services. She was on her way to the airport, en route to a prospective client meeting in LA. I was on my way to meet up with the rest of the Adams Apprenticeship group at their hotel, which happened to be on the way to the airport. Before I had even finished my morning hot chocolate, I was talking startups with a complete stranger. What a welcome to San Francisco, the land of startups and where the future is made.
