Jess Lee · Senior at University of Virginia · Co-founder of Seed-ville
Using her background in computer science and business, Jessica co-founded Seed-ville to help small business find funding. Through Seed-ville she helped carpe donut, a local organic donut store raise money for their second food truck. When Jessica started coding, she was intimidated and afraid of failing. She overcame her fears by participating in hackathons. This summer, Jessica interned at Secret App through a Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers fellowship. Her advice to fellow wogrammers: “Always be coding. Do projects outside classes and there are so many courses out there on the internet. Just don’t give up even if people are negative or if you feel lost. Everyone starts somewhere”.
