We are thrilled to announce that Jessica Kim ‘00 will be joining the Nelson Center as our inaugural Entrepreneur in Residence this semester! Jessica is certainly no stranger to entrepreneurship at Brown. Her own journey began with a venture started out of her dorm room at Barbour Hall, where she founded her first company, Jessica’s Wonders (which also landed her first prize at a former pitch competition hosted by the Brown Entrepreneurship Program). She went on to found BabbaCo which she ultimately led to a successful sale to Barefoot Books. Read more about her journey in our recent blog post. Her latest venture, Ianacare, is working to provide support and assistance to people caring for loved ones with prolonged illnesses in the home.
Over the course of the semester Jessica will be working with aspiring entrepreneurs and ventures and will be offering mentorship and support. We couldn’t be more excited to have Jessica as part of the Nelson Center team – stay tuned for more information about her availability and office hours this semester!
