Swartz Fellows Reception invites leading Pittsburgh Entrepreneurs & VCs to CMU

On Tuesday evening, the Tepper School of Business held a reception for its Swartz Fellows and their mentors. The James R. Swartz Entrepreneurial Fellowship Program provides mentoring, an internship and other business leadership programs to a select number of MBA students in the second year of their studies. The new program was made possible with a gift from Mr. Swartz, a Tepper school alumnus and venture capitalist who co-founded Palo Alto, Calif.-based private equity firm Accel Partners.

In addition to the Swartz Fellows, themselves, others in attendance included regional entrepreneurs, venture capitals, and business leaders such as David Palmer, CEO of ClearCount Medical Solutions; Tony Muscato, Group VP of Heinz NA Foodservice Sales & Marketing; Chris Cynkar, president of the private equity firm Swisshelm Park Investors; Steve Robinson of Robinson Venture Partners; Sean Sebastian, founder and partner of Birchmere Ventures; and Craig Gomulka and Donald H. Jones, Draper Triangle.
