BU senior participates in Fellows Program at Stanford

Mechanical engineering student JONATHAN SAUDER ’09 of Roanoke was one of 56 college students worldwide chosen to participate in Stanford University’s Roundtable on Entrepreneurship Education (REE) Fellows Program. The three-month program culminated in mid-October with a one-week trip to Stanford University and Silicon Valley. There, the students, coming from a variety of majors and undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs, participated in interdisciplinary and international teams.

Sauder worked with three other international team members and said the opportunity gave him a chance to practice what he had learned in his mechanical engineering classes. His team included a global entrepreneurship MBA student from Thailand, a biomedical engineering doctoral student from Ireland, and a biotechnology entrepreneurship graduate student, who is a native of India and is pursuing studies in the United States. The team collaborated via the Internet for three months on a project focusing on a service-oriented business for local produce farmers. During the week at Stanford, the group developed a business plan for their project, including a Web site where consumers could order produce online from farmers.
