MICHELLE PETERSEN ’18

Brown Venture Founder 2018-2019

Michelle is the co-lead of TextUp, a start-up that builds software tools for non-profits and government-funded agencies.  Her interest in entrepreneurship is centered on questions regarding how the financial, educational, and social capital of a few can be leveraged to benefit many.  She juggles her full course load, volunteering, and TextUp responsibilities with working full-time.  While she promises no easy answers, Michelle is always willing to chat over tea about power & privilege in entrepreneurship, juggling student entrepreneurship with other responsibilities, and co-creating solutions with your target population.
