Hump Day Exchange: The Student Hustle
On the sixteenth episode of Hump Day Exchange, we sat down with Lekha Surasani, Director of Finance and Operations for HackGT; Wesley Samples, Co-Director of Startup Exchange; and Chloe Belangia, Executive Director of TEDxGeorgiaTech. All three guests are organizers of student-founded organizations on Georgia Tech's campus, each with the common goal of promoting student curiosity, innovation, and drive. HackGT hosts one of the largest-attended collegiate hackathons in the country; Startup Exchange is a group dedicated to promoting and supporting student entrepreneurship; and TEDxGeorgiaTech puts on events to both give students a voice to share their stories, and an provide an outlet for their curiosity. Each student leader gave us some insight on what it's like to be a student these days, and we were blown away by their words of wisdom.
Hump Day Exchange is one part social gathering of the Tech Square community and one part podcast recording. Each month, after sharing some food and drink, we explore one topic from three perspectives. Each guest goes into the hot seat to talk with our host 1:1, then all three guests engage in a roundtable conversation. We end with questions from the live studio audience.
Hump Day Exchange is a collaborative effort of Sandbox ATL and ATDC.
