As an young entrepreneur, Liz has learned a lot about maintaining a passion, building meaningful connections and growing a business - all in a relatively short time. She feels her pivotal point of growth was during her four years at college - in her passionate talk, she highlights seven things she believes each student should do before they graduate and how these actions will affect who they grow up to be. As a student at UPenn, Liz had observed peers who struggled to find relevant work during the school year. Later, as a Google employee, she saw that even the largest, most well-known companies struggle to find key hires. Liz wanted to fix this problem through tech.

Today, they’ve got 35+ employees and the site is currently getting 1 out of 3 users hired. Liz hopes that one day WayUp will land every student their first job. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
