Ray Kurtzweil is an entrepreneur who started his first company at age 20. Mr. Kurzweil would be a very valuable speaker for Bucknell students. A very unique businessman, Kurzweil has a dual bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Literature. I think this is a very interesting combination and is most likely the reason for his incredible success. Hearing from Mr. Kurzweil about the benefits of holding a double degree in a humanity and science subject for a successful business mindset.
Mr. Kurtzweil would also be an interesting speaker for Bucknell students because of his fame and recognition among the business community. He was ranked 8th best entrepreneurs in the US and has received 19 honorary doctorates and honors, three of which were given to him by US Presidents. Hearing about these honors and what Kurzweil did to earn them would be a very unique and valuable experience for us.
