Kim Clark returns, drones invade HBS, and alumni veterans are recognizedRe: Nick Horbaczewski (MBA 2008); Brittany Davis (MBA 2015); Kim ClarkTopics:
Six drone companies put their wares in the air during Making Robotics Fly, a daylong event cohosted by HBS and the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to explore the intersection of engineering and entrepreneurship. Among the flyers: Drone Racing League CEO Nicholas Horbaczewski (MBA 2008), whose speedy competitors reached 100 mph.
PayPal cofounder and tech investor Max Levchin stopped by the i-lab to hear a few pitches from Harvard entrepreneurs, including Brittany Davis (MBA 2015), cofounder and CEO of fashion tech company Runway Technologies.
Among the messages from former HBS Dean Kim B. Clark during an October address on “Leaders Who Make a Difference,” hosted by the Latter-day Saint Student Association: “We need leaders who are modest and teachable, who are hungry for new insights. We need leaders who are humble.”
Last month, the School unveiled the Wall of Recognition of Service to Country. The 10,000-pound granite sculpture—a collaboration between the administration and the Armed Forces Alumni Association—recognizes those from HBS “who have served their country in times of war and peace.”
