We are excited to invite the Ivy Circle to the Stanford University summer garden event on Sunday, July 10, 2022 from 4 pm at the beautiful Q Beach, which just recently reopened in the Halensee/Grunewald neighborhood. Q Beach is on Koenigsalle 5B, 14193 Berlin. There will be a BBQ, wine, beer and soft drinks.
We have the honor of welcoming Stanford Prof. Jenny Suckale as a special guest. Prof. Suckale is part of the founding team at the new Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability, a massive investment into making this world a better place, and Stanford’s first new school in more than 70 years. The new school, opening in September, has the mandate to drive scholarship and high-impact solutions for climate and sustainability challenges around the world, with an endowment of $1.69B to launch. We are honored to get this first hand exclusive preview even before its opening.
For a discussion with all participants we’ll have two outstanding personalities join Prof. Suckale:
Albrecht Graf Matuschka, the iconic pioneer of Corporate Venture Capital in Germany in the 1980’s and expert in sustainable finance. He has been involved in the establishment of the German private business school system. He travels to Berlin from Frankfurt.
Juan Carlos Alonso, Stanford Graduate School of Business graduate, executive board member of the Belgian corporation Bekaert, a $5 billion revenue world market leader in steel fiber products. Juan Carlos is responsible for strategy and corporate development of a company which is prototypical for sustainable transformation. He travels for the event from Belgium.
Please bring your friends and families for what will be a great event. The gorgeous venue is by a lake and the BBQ will be hosted by our own Chef Susanne, who has a culinary degree.
