PHILADELPHIA -Penn Athletics is pleased to announce a signature Mentoring Event on Sunday. Hosted on campus by Penn Athletics and alumni leadership of the Track & Field & Cross Country programs, the event will feature multiple sessions in which an experienced panel of Penn alumni, including Jeff Kearl, a 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year honoree, willprovide personalized guidance and insight to over 100 current Track student-athletes.

Kearl, the co-founder and Chairman of Stance (a high-growth apparel company with many celebrity investors) who was named the Entrepreneur of the Year in Orange County (CA), will deliver opening remarks and provide student-athletes the chance to learn through engaged conversation.

“Jeff is one of the great consumer products entrepreneurs, who thoroughly understands capitalizing on market opportunities, raising funds, leveraging network and building high caliber executive teams,” remarked alumna Kathy Schlein C'83.

Important topics covered throughout the day will include mastering the art of networking and entrepreneurship, resume building tips, how to best secure internships and positioning one’s self as a potential job candidate. The panel will also visit with the group in focused breakout sessions to explain their journey from college and their special experiences as Penn student-athletes to their current positions.
