Harvard alumni to speak to WU students regarding his business

Richard Kelly / Washburn Review

Morgan Hermand-Waiche will be the guest speaker for the Washburn Ad Club Thursday Sept. 23 at noon in the Kansas Room, Memorial Union.

Hermand-Waiche, who will be in town for a business engagement, is the CEO of his own online startup, www.matchvenue.com and a Harvard Business School alumni.

He will share his experiences regarding fundraising, being a CEO, and the Internet, among other subjects.

His website is a students- only social network, which he hopes will interest fans of Facebookand Twitter.

He created his idea while at Harvard, due to having to be able to communicate with other students via a video chat. He also knew it would be important to broadcast live clubs and association’s meetings.

If students who attend the meeting sign up for his website prior to attending, they may have a chance to win an all expense paid four-day trip to Boston and Paris.
