Tuck alumni who have gone on to have successful and rewarding careers in private equity and venture capital are a diverse group with interesting stories.  Our CPEVC Advisory Board members include many Tuck and Dartmouth alumni who welcome the opportunity to share their experiences and advice with prospective and current students. For Mayur Kassetty T’16 his conversation with CPEVC Advisory Board member Russ Steenberg T’83 helped convince him to come to Tuck: “I met Russ Steenberg T’83 when I was a first-year medical student. I had a great conversation with him about my interest in pursuing a dual-degree, and he gave me insights that ultimately influenced my decision to apply.”

Tuck students benefit from the school's incredible network of alumni working in the private equity and venture capital sector. Alumni, including alumni CPEVC fellows, are encouraged to stay in touch with the Center to share their expertise and experience with current Tuck students. The diverse pathways that recent alumni took while at Tuck speak to important role Centers, including CEPVC, play in providing guidance and support to students as they customize their learning experience.
