Alumni gathered in New York City in November for a dynamic case discussion — a special benefit for members of the HBS Fund Investors Society. John Quelch, the Charles Edward Wilson Professor of Business Administration at HBS, joined alumni for a reception and then led the discussion. The case focused on 23andMe, whose sale of genetic testing kits directly to consumers was challenged by the Food & Drug Administration. Quelch, who coauthored the case, is also on the faculty of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

The Investors Society recognizes leadership annual donors to the HBS Fund for Leadership and Innovation. “The School relies on the generosity of Investors Society members each year to fulfill its mission,” says Ashley Garrett (MBA 1987), who serves as chair of the HBS Fund along with her husband, Alan “AJ” Jones (MBA 1987).

“This event was a wonderful example of expanding efforts to connect members more closely with HBS, top faculty, and new ideas.”

Membership in the Investors Society, which included nearly 1,200 alumni and friends in fiscal year 2016, is based on a donor’s total outright gifts and pledge payments to the HBS Fund in a given year. The fund provides flexible resources that the School can put to use immediately to advance core priorities and harness new opportunities.
