What I Wish I Knew Before Joining a Startup

Job searching with startups can feel less defined than with larger companies-how do you find roles, evaluate culture/fit, negotiate compensation, and define your place at the company? On Tuesday, February 6 at 7pm EDT, join Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship for a virtual panel discussion about careers in startups, followed by breakout sessions where you can speak personally with panelists whose career paths interest you. Speak with Victoria Chibuogu Nneji PhD '19 (founder, AKALAKA), Catherine Bhattachar MBA '21 (COO, Tiny Earth Toys), and Quinci King '20 (Founder, Audacity Labs; Senior Business Operations Manager, BetterUp). Whether you're exploring your career options, building experience to launch your own startup someday, or looking to make a career change, this session will help you best position yourself now for future opportunities. This event was designed for current Duke students (undergraduate, graduate, and professional) and recent alumni. Questions? Contact Anna Jacobs (
