Today, many aspiring MBAs and MBA graduates want to join start-ups or launch such companies themselves. Is entrepreneurship as exciting as it seems? Is it really for you? mbaMission Founder Jeremy Shinewald has teamed up with Venture for America and CBS Interactive to launch Smart People Should Build Things: The Venture for America Podcast. Each week, Shinewald interviews another entrepreneur so you can hear the gritty stories of their ups and downs on the road to success.
In the twelfth episode of the podcast series, Admittedly Founder and CEO Jessica Brondo Davidoff shares her entrepreneurial journey thus far with Shinewald and listeners. Admittedly’s software helps high school students find the college or university of their dreams through quizzes that deliver personalized results. How did a public policy and international affairs major end up saving high school students from the headache of finding their ideal college or university? Brondo Davidoff shares her story, touching on these topics and much more:
- How she walked away from a blooming business—her first venture, educational consulting firm The Edge in College Prep—to launch Admittedly
- Witnessing an influx of 38K new students join Admittedly in one month alone
- Participating in two seed accelerators armed with only an “awful” PowerPoint proposal—but no actual product
