Friday 11/07-12/19
Windows on the West film series
6pm - 9pm
Location:Assembly room, Bechtel I-Center
Free
Dinner will be provided
RSVP:http://web.stanford.edu/dept/icenter/west.fb

This film series is designed to help first year foreign students understand us Americans. For many it is difficult, confusing & frustrating. Who are we?  How do we relate to other people? How do we convey respect or not? We send mixed messages.  You are traveling through a minefield.  So is everyone else in their first experience in America.  My hope is that through this film series, you can laugh at us & with us in our inconsistencies & poorly conveyed social signals. I want to be able to understand you as a person and as a people that you represent. I also chose these films because I find them enormously entertaining.

Lecture & workshop: Presented by *Rashmi Menon*, Product and Strategy Consultant. Startups in Silicon Valley are inherently sexy, so most of us dream of being entrepreneurs at some point in our career. But have you ever asked yourselves these following questions:
Is entrepreneurship right for me? Is it the right time to start a business? Are my skills a match for the business I want to launch?
Rashmi Menon has launched numerous businesses and products within large corporations including The Walt Disney Company, Microsoft, and Yahoo!. She co-founded Green Resource Network and served as Vice President of Product Management at two startups, Zvents (acquired by eBay) and VideoGenie. Currently, she serves as a product and strategy consultant to numerous companies and is a mentor at the StartX Startup Accelerator.
