SU Advantage | Networking Night
Entrepreneurship The Seattle U Way
Thursday, February 23, 2017
6-8 p.m.
Hotel Sorrento – Top of the Town room

Seattle University alumni are known for the impact they make. The St. Ignatius of Loyola quote, “Go forth and set the world on fire” is taken to heart by our alumni, especially our entrepreneurs. Our next SU Advantage networking night explores this approach to business with a panel discussion. Hear from our alumni entrepreneurs about their paths to success, challenges they’ve overcome and the opportunities for entrepreneurs in 2017.  

The panel will be moderated by Sue Oliver, Executive Director of the Entrepreneurship Center in the Albers School of Business and Economics. Sue maintains that Seattle U entrepreneurs are different. “There are competencies that you need to succeed as an entrepreneur, but Seattle U alums do it in a way that pays it forward. They put passion in action and create a thriving life they want to live.”

The panelists include four thriving alumni entrepreneurs.

Matt Iseri, MBA, ‘05
Founder, Tokusaki Consulting

Valerie Trask, MBA, ‘11
Founder, Masters of Moxie: Coaching + Consulting for Founders, Leaders, and Game Changers
Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer, Sansaire
Co-Founder/CEO, Punchkeeper

Tiffany Ash, 02
Vice President, Operations at Tableau Software

Michael “Mick” McHugh, ‘66
Co-founder and proprietor of F.X. McRory's Bar and Restaurant

Following the panel discussion, attendees will engage in rounds of structured networking. Each round will focus on a question posed by our panelists.

This is not only a great chance to learn from the experienced entrepreneurs, but to build your network and connect with other Seattle U alumni.  Reserve your spot now.

Guests will enjoy complimentary appetizers and one free drink.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
