Partner J. Mark Waxman and his wife, Paula, have launched a Mentorship Initiative at the California Institute for Innovation and Development at the Rady School of Management at the University of California San Diego. Waxman is an alumnus of the university.
The Mentorship Initiative will coordinate mentorship opportunities throughout the Rady School and create a forum to enhance and coordinate mentoring these opportunities and allow startup entrepreneurs to have a recognized resource of experienced mentors to help them move forward.
