BIO

Madel Beaudouin is the founder of The Queens Entrepreneurship Fund, in Queens, New York. Through her social venture, Madel (who pitched to us for the second time this year) will give rigorous training opportunities for Queens College students to provide consultation services to small businesses in the neighborhood surrounding the Queens College campus. In so doing, the Queens Entrepreneurship Fund will help to ensure that Queens College fulfills its tremendous potential for social impact in the area it surrounds, while tapping the energy, ideas, and intellectual capital of its students. The venture continues to expand: Madel reports that she was recently able to acquire two new small business clients, two new partnerships, and to manage a volunteer-led team of 8 people, as well as to convince her host college to incorporate the program into the college’s function.
