UMass Lecture & Food Tour

Posted on April 4th, 2017 to Barefoot Training


We had a killer time at the UMass Senior Entrepreneurial Finance Course yesterday.

The students were engaged, we covered some awesome material, and they finished with some excellent questions to wrap things up. 

Professor Charles Johnson teaches the course. Charlie has impressive experience and knowledge of VC’s and startups having achieved Partner status at three different firms until retiring to teach at UMass Amherst.

The talk was an intro to who we are, the why behind our mission, and how our early success helped drive our Kickstarter Campaign. We fielded questions about how we are innovative, how we market and advertise, what some of our biggest hurdles are, and how we plan to grow the brand.

We are honored and proud to report that it was the most well attended and well received class thus far this semester. We look forward to heading back there soon.

On a side note, we crushed a little food tour prior to the lecture. We hit up Fresh Side for Tea Rolls, Antonio’s for some slices, Bueno y Sano for a burrito, and The Black Sheep for their cookies and chocolate moose. Pictures below. Enjoy!

Much Love,

The Pedestal Guys
