Grant Son Joins Greater Good Challenge as Judge
Grant Son, Senior Lecturer in the Discipline of Sports Management, will join the team of judges for The Greater Good Challenge, a business pitch competition hosted by the Career Design Lab and made possible with support from the Beba Foundation and Turkish Philanthropy Funds.
Professor Son previously served as CEO of a startup he grew to become a top 10 sports technology company acquired by ESPN where he raised three rounds of venture funding (series A, series B, and series C) after an initial seed financing. (As a frame of reference, less than 10% of CEOs that have raised a seed round of financing are able to raise three additional rounds of financing.)
Son has served as judge for the finals or semi-finals for the venture competitions at Columbia and Penn/Wharton School for the past five years. He is a graduate of both the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia Business School. Son has also served as Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) for the Wharton School as well as EIR for the Wharton Social Impact Initiative.
