Tweetable Quotes:


“You wouldn’t build anything else without intentionality. Everything that engineers build is with intention and a lot of research. So I would just encourage all engineers to be also intentional and do a lot of research around communication, and interpersonal skills.”

– Sarah Banowetz


“The whole concept that the blessings that we receive are not just for us. Some of it is for us, but it’s also for us to be a blessing to other people, and thinking about entrepreneurship from the standpoint of helping to provide human flourishing, I think is again a beautiful concept.”

– Dr. James Bryant
