From Makaela Kingsley in the Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship:

Beezer Clarkson ’94, Kagiso Bond ’01, and Erica Gersowitz ’01 will speak about their lives after college. Like many Wesleyan alumni, parts of their work can be called “social entrepreneurship.” Beezer managed investments in the microfinance sector and advises a Wes-founded social enterprise that provides accounting and credit scoring tools for micro-borrowers in developing economies. Kai has made a career out of researching, funding, advising, incubating, and accelerating tech startups – many in the gaming industry, but with crossovers to the ‘tech for good’ sector. Erica has used her law degree to work for improvements in the criminal justice system, finding innovative ways to have lasting social impact.

The talks will begin promptly at noon and end by 1 p.m. Beezer, Kai, and Erica will be available for private drop-in sessions immediately after. Lunch will be served for those who register by September 24.
