Last year, I remember the days leading up to the Founder’s Retreat. I felt nervous and anxious, wondering if others would see me as a legitimate entrepreneur. I was excited to be around other like-minded people and meet some new VCs / angel investors. Most of all, I wondered if I would have a moment of clarity and receive some long-awaited answers to questions that had been ringing around my mind for months. Were the two years and $120,000 I was about to spend worth it or should I spend that time and money launching a company? Should I launch a biz during school or would I be happier getting a job and launching one later down the road? Are the faculty at Wharton engaged in entrepreneurship or simply happy to teach their classes and conduct their research?
