Jennifer and Brian
I created the Brian Maxwell Fellows at the Haas School of Business in 2006 to commemorate my late husband Brian, PowerBar co-founder. Brian had an insatiable entrepreneurial spirit and created opportunities throughout his meaningful, but short life of 51 years. I want to keep Brian’s spirit alive and thriving. Through the creation of this fellowship, I want to make it possible for graduate students with a dream and the drive to “go for it,” to create opportunities, to innovate and bring real value and change to the world.
I believe in the future generations of entrepreneurs. It is important to identify, assist and develop exceptional minds who follow their dreams and strive to make a difference in people’s lives.
