About this event

The event kicks off at 6:00pm with an hour long food and networking session.  Food is to be provided by Fathy's restaurant Tabooli.  Once everyone has filtered in, we start the fireside chat with Fathy Shetiah at 7pm where Phil Threadgould performs the interview.  Q&A with Fathy runs from roughly 7:45 to 8:00pm.  At 8:00pm we will have MSU student Giana Carli give a 3 minute pitch on her grocery delivery app called Crudo.  After that we will adjourn for more networking.
