On April 11, young alumni and distinguished members of Fordham’s President’s Council held a unique mentoring event modeled after TV’s Shark Tank. Some 50 attendees participated in the executive leadership event, which brought together alumni entrepreneurs to present their businesses to a panel of experienced alumni professionals. Rather than pledging capital, the “sharks” offered advice and private mentoring sessions to help their younger counterparts’ businesses thrive.

The winner was Cindy Poiesz, Gabelli ’11. She is the founder of Supernola, superfood granola.
