To say that Jeff Reid has a passion for entrepreneurship would be an understatement. 

After graduating from The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School in 1997, Reid wasted no time founding a Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the university, which over the years has served thousands of students with a passion for entrepreneurship. While working there, Reid founded the Venture Capital Investment Competition, an award-winning nationwide experiential education program for entrepreneurship that operates successfully to this day.

He then worked for a law firm and a venture-backed startup before joining the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, (or NFTE, pronounced “nifty”) where he helped to provide entrepreneurship education to thousands of young, low-income students in the Washington D.C. area. In 2009, Reid became the Founding Director of the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative, a program that aims to instill an entrepreneurial mindset in Georgetown students. 

My colleague Madeleine and I recently had the privilege of talking to Professor Jeff Reid about his experiences and insight regarding entrepreneurship, and we decided to organize his questions into four themed articles that are listed below.
