Student Success Story – Noah Sobel-Pressman

Noah Sobel-Pressman ‘21 (BUS) grew up surrounded by entrepreneurs.

“I’m lucky to have a lot of examples in my family of successful entrepreneurs,” says Sobel-Pressman, who is from West Hartford. “From a young age, I was interested in entrepreneurship because I had all these role models I wanted to emulate.”

Now a management major with a minor in data analytics and Chinese, Sobel-Pressman has utilized the resources and opportunities at UConn to learn more about venture capitalism and entrepreneurship, and develop programs to help other students.

Sobel-Pressman founded the Get Seeded program with the Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Peter J. Werth Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and other partners. Get Seeded allows students to pitch their ideas to an audience of their peers in the hopes of receiving up to $1,000 in seed funding and get feedback on their idea.
