VALENTIN PEREZ ’18

Computer Science & Applied Math

Adventurer at heart, Valentin believes Brown is a special place to delve into Entrepreneurship and creative thinking. He is concentrating in Computer Science and Applied Math but loves interdisciplinary thought. He was the previous co-president of Brown EP, founder of the Startup@Brown conference, and was on Hack@Brown’s organizing team for two years. He has several apps in the AppStore and is an Apple WWDC ’15 Scholar. Valentin interned at Snap last summer and at Uber the summer before, both as a Software Engineer. His freshman year he co-founded Daycation, a travel startup still run by his Co-Founder & friend from Brown in Miami. Daycation received grants from Brown and funding from Rough Draft Ventures, General Catalyst’s initiative to back founders at the university level. Valentin started RDV’s presence at Brown and helps make investment decisions out of their Boston office every week. Recommend Valentin articles to read and books to listen.
