2015 Freeman Fellows

In summer 2015, JD/MBA students Lauren Kurashige and Tuan La, along with, Vietnam Executive MBA (VEMBA) students Jack Hua and Erin Hoang Anh Nguyen collaborated over the course of six weeks to complete a feasibility analysis for a Vietnamese angel investment network for Shidler College of Business VEMBA alumni.

With a network of almost 400 graduates working in various senior management positions in Vietnam, the Freeman Fellows found that this group possesses the business acumen, net worth, and network needed in an angel network. Moreover, the Fellows found that the alumni are enthusiastic and supportive of the creation of such a network.
