Jamieson and Collins, both Darden alumni, are changing the way people engage in physical activity. With a growing demand to incorporate pickleball events into wedding celebrations and encourage employee participation in active activities, including personalized pickleballs, their business is on the rise. They attribute their success to Darden’s exceptional curriculum and support network.

Collins highlights the generosity and knowledge of everyone involved at Darden, particularly entrepreneurship professors like Jim Zuffoletti who provided invaluable mentorship. Jamieson also acknowledges Zafolletti’s guidance on various aspects of business development, from fundraising to sales strategies, as well as their willingness to invest time in their success.

Looking ahead, Jamieson and Collins are eager to gain more insight at an upcoming venture capital conference where Darden alumni will serve as panelists. They recognize the importance of relationships and networking in the venture capital industry. Shared experience with Darden colleagues fosters a sense of camaraderie and understanding which can lead to fruitful connections for aspiring venture capitalists and successful fundraising for entrepreneurs seeking venture capital investment. These connections are critical to advancing your career in the industry and securing capital to grow your business.
