Growthink's Luke Brown was awarded USC's Coach, Mentor and Advisor of the Year earlier this week, chosen by faculty and staff at the Marshall School of Business. Brown is pictured below with Faculty Coordinator, Professor Patrick Henry of the Lloyd Grief Center for Entrepreneurial Studies.
Luke, along with Professor Patrick Henry, led the Venture Initiation class comprised of 16 undergraduate students. Luke's years as an entrepreneur, advisor at Growthink, public speaker and his endless passion for learning and mentoring made him the perfect choice to coach this motivated class with an emphasis on Launching and Scaling Your Startup: Learn to build a startup from concept to reality with a focus on real-world entrepreneurial action and execution.The Lloyd Grief Center for Entrepreneurship also named its 2014 Undergrad Entrepreneur of the Year. The honoree of this award, Garret Davis, is CEO and Founder of Refined Hardware, which makes limited edition luxury watches in America.
