Please join us for an inspirational conversation with Patrick Cao (TPR 2006), President of GoTo Group (Indonesia’s largest internet company) and Jake Vachal (TPR 2007), Managing Director of The Raine Group, who will share the story of a friendship that started at CMU in the halls of Donner and led to a lifelong partnership to which they owe, in large part, their success, with Patrick working to empower progress in the ASEAN digital economy with GoTo and Jake developing groundbreaking strategies for the global media & technology sectors. They will touch on topics ranging from the foundational nature of their time at CMU to their outlook for the future of technology across diverse sectors in the US and Asia. This is a must-listen for the entire CMU community, including current students, alumni and a new generation of Tartans.
