In Memory of Ovik Banerjee, Class of 2012
It is with great sadness that we honor the memory of Ovik Banerjee, a Venture for America Fellow and graduate of the University of North Carolina, who passed away unexpectedly in Las Vegas, where he had been working for the Downtown Project for the past year and a half. Ovik, whose home was Alabama, was an adventuring 20-something, passionate about the environment, sustainability, entrepreneurship, the Green Bay Packers, and, of course, the Tar Heels and the Crimson Tide.
We mourn with his family and friends and the entire Venture for America community.
We will be holding a memorial for Ovik this Thursday, January 16th at VFA HQ. We invite guests to stop by at their convenience, so please feel free to join us and share your stories or memories. Details are below:
