Online Educational Talks -

Chinese American Parent Association of Howard County (CAPA-HC) is holding weekly zoom online talks for school age children since April 9.


Topic: College Entrepreneurship

Time: February 5, 2021 8:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Presenter: David Lange

This Talk will provide a glimpse on the Georgetown Entrepreneurship program. Georgetown Entrepreneurship seeks to instill an entrepreneurial mindset in students, to foster an entrepreneurial culture across the university, and to leverage the power of entrepreneurship to make an impact in the world beyond Georgetown.

David Lange is the Campus Program Manager for Georgetown Entrepreneurship. He is responsible for all student-facing programming, including pitch competitions, mentorship opportunities, internships, and more. He is also the author of an upcoming book on America’s changing food system called “A Farm on Every Corner: Reimagining America’s Food System for the Twenty-First Century.”

Prior to his time with Georgetown, David was the Manager of the Glover Park – Burleith Farmers Market for the 2019 season. In 2018, he worked on Search and Rescue and childcare operations at the Kara Tepe refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesvos. He has also worked in various capacities with ThinkFoodGroup, one of the DC area’s preeminent restaurant groups.

David Lange is a graduate of The George Washington University with a B.A. in International Development and is a current Master of Business Administration (MBA) candidate at Georgetown University.

At this difficult time of COVID-19 pandemic, we hope the regularly scheduled talks can help parents and students with the home-school and distance learning plans. We want to thank Howard County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) for sponsoring this activity. 


Please ask your students to join the zoom meeting on Friday, February 5 at 8:00pm.
