Nick is 19 years old and loves making people laugh. He is also a huge advocate for anything involving hash browns. Nick a Sophomore from Bow, New Hampshire studying Business at the University of New Hampshire. He plans to pursue a dual focus in Finance and Entrepreneurial Studies. Nick loves learning about new technologies and their future applications, like blockchain, artificial intelligence, and an IoT connected world. Music, exercise, friends, and family are a huge part of his life. At school, the two extracurriculars most important to him are Alpha Kappa Psi and the Rines Angel Fund. Alpha Kappa Psi is a co-ed professional business fraternity. With over 80 members from a handful of disciplines, each "brother" brings a unique piece of value to the group. Nick found Alpha Kappa Psi to be a great way to build relationships with like-minded people, as well as an exceptional way to build on his professional background. The Rines Angel Fund is a multidisciplinary, undergraduate managed, private equity angel investment group. Students get to interact with entrepreneurs and listen to them give their pitches. After that, we perform a due diligence research project where we learn more about the market that the startup operates in, the entrepreneurs' team, and the ins and outs of their product. Next, we decide whether to invest seed stage funding in their product or service. It has been a great opportunity to learn more about what it takes to bring an idea to commercialization as well as how a startup company receives its funding. After college, he hopes to pursue a lifelong career where I can use his innate curiosity and amiable communication skills to find solutions to some of the world's pressing problems.
