Meet Venture Capitalist Randy Poliner!

The Harvard Club of Central Florida and the All-Ivy Club of Central Florida are reconnecting with the Space Coast! In that spirit, there will be a tripartite inaugural lunch series - noon on Friday June 29th, Friday July 20th and Friday August 3rd - at the Pane e Vino Italian restaurant located just to the left of the Premiere Oaks 10 movie theatre at 1800 W Hibiscus Blvd. in Melbourne, Florida. 

Three dates are offered to encourage attendance, since it is always difficult to get everyone together at the same time. 

The "Special Guest" for Friday, July 20th will be Randy Poliner, a very successful venture capitalist. Randy is a graduate of Georgia Tech, Carnegie Mellon, and Harvard Business School. See more about Randy below. 


Your host will be Keiron Hylton, Harvard '82 (Anthropology) and JD/MBA '86. He has had an unusually broad career (radio entrepreneur, strategy consultant, information industry investment banker, college professor) - which makes for entertaining conversation. 

Please consider these conversational starters to break the Ivy ice:
- your most memorable gastronomical experience,

- your most memorable travel experience, 

- your most memorable work experience, and

- your most memorable anthropological/cross-cultural experience. 

RSVP to Keiron at khyltongsb at gmail dot com.

And please link to the newly created Space Coast All-Ivy LinkedIn group!

See you there!
