Embracing Entrepreneurship: From English Professor to Shark Tank
What is the path from teaching 18th century literature to founding an education technology venture? Do there exist fundamental skills, and a defined entrepreneurial mindset, that Ph.D.s can draw upon and activate to build their career of choice, or simply land a job?
Dr. Carol Barash has some answers. After beginning her career as a Professor of Women's Literature and receiving her Ph.D. from Princeton, she then became a successful start-up founder as well as an executive coach, expert communicator and award-winning author. She has been recognized as a Top Women in NYC Start-Ups , the 10 EdTech Companies You Need to Know, and her current venture, Story2, is backed by Goldman Sachs, Techstars, Kaplan, and Yale Angels.
