Out To Lunch: Catching Up

Alison Moon
It's New Orleans

Two years ago on Out to Lunch we met two very interesting entrepreneurs.

Today, Haley Burns and Libby Fisher are Peter's guests on Out to Lunch. Two years later, things are very different for both of them.

Haley Burns was just finishing up school. She was wondering if she could turn a project called Fund 17 that she’d started as a student, into a full time job.

Libby Fisher had come to New Orleans to get involved in education again, having been a part of Teach For America in Mississippi. On this trip, Libby wound up as CEO of an education startup called Whetstone.

Peter Ricchiuti is the finance professor you wish you had back in college! His insight and humor have twice made him the top professor at Tulane University's A.B. Freeman School of Business. After a successful career on Wall Street, Ricchiuti served for five years as Assistant State Treasurer and Chief Investment Officer for the State of Louisiana. There he skillfully managed the State's $3 billion investment portfolio.
