Catherine Byers Breet '92

Founder and Chief Stripe Changer, ARBEZ

Since graduating from Longwood in 1993, she’s slung drinks in Seattle, Alaska & Japan, camped with grizzlies in Alaska and gone diving with sharks in Mozambique. The best part is, she’s gotten to paid to do most of her crazy adventures. After working for two global consulting firms and working at a few other jobs (12, to be exact), she started a company she calls "Zebra backwards" and dared to dream big: she’s on a mission to help 1M people to do what they love for a living. She’s well on her way.

John Hill

Network Catalyst, Techstars

Traded one passion for another which led John to leave Michigan State University to become the Higher Education Evangelist at LinkedIn. He did it one more time moving from LinkedIn to become the Network Catalyst for Techstars. (He has a thing for cool work titles.) John believes "changing the world" can be more than hyperbole, and that building relationships and connecting people with opportunity are at his core- relying heavily on online and offline networks to facilitate each. He's young, smart and global at heart, MSU by passion and driven by nature.
