Acknowledgements

The student leadership committee would like to thank the following organizations for their invaluable help and support:

Center for Entrepreneurial Studies provided tremendous institutional support at Stanford for the Entrepreneurship Conference. Center Directors Chuck Holloway, Irv Grousbeck, and Peter Reiss were extremely generous in donating their time and advice and in helping to shape the content for this year's Conference; they are outstanding instructors and mentors to the many aspiring entrepreneurs at the Stanford GSB. Special thanks to CES Executive Director Linda Wells, Associate Director Lisa Sweeney and Program Manager Nancy Gross. This team has generously provided the leadership committee with critical planning and logistics assistance. There is no way that the Conference could have come together successfully without their tireless support and endless patience.
