Venture Forward is a series of conversations with Georgetown entrepreneurs that explores the roads they’ve travelled to launch their companies, and the peaks, valleys, and unexpected turns that mark their paths.
Darius Baxter (C’15), Troye Bullock (C’16), and Danny Wright (C’16) were football players at Georgetown when they founded GOODProjects, an organization that is now impacting thousands of kids and their families in DC’s underserved neighborhoods.
Mackenzie Copley (C’15) founded One Tent Health, a DC non-profit that offers free HIV screenings to DC residents in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. His work has caught the attention of national and international health experts, including those at the World Health Organization (WHO).
Mary Giuliani (C’97), founder of MGC & Events, is a NYC event planner and caterer to the stars. When she’s not on TV sharing party tips with Rachael Ray, she is often designing sets for fashion shows or movie and TV premiers, and creating tasty dishes that complement the theme.
Luke Schoenfelder co-founded Latch in his mid-twenties and has grown it to a value of approximately $500M. The company has partnered with UPS and Walmart, among others, and successfully delivered three high tech lock devices, and the software behind them, to market.
Michael O’Neil, a JD-MBA, launched GetWellNetwork (GWN) while still a student at Georgetown. Over the past twenty years, he has grown it into a multimillion dollar company that has partnered with the largest hospitals in the US, and vastly improved the hospital experience for their patients. GWN is now expanding into the Middle East, Europe and Australia, and Canada.
