This Week in the Voice: Tech startups at Georgetown

coverIn this week’s feature, Connor Jones looks at Georgetown students who have begun their own tech start-up companies and the obstacles they face in developing them.

A small minority of students who have successfully built or broken into startup tech companies does exist, but those students in that group insist that they have received minimal to no help from the University.
