4 03 FOUNDER AND CEO, YEAR UP Gerald Chertavian takes the adage what doesn t kill us makes us stronger to heart. Within adversity are the seeds of resilience, says the son of a dentist who grew up in working-class Lowell, Massachusetts. Chertavian s philosophy is at the core of Year Up, the extraordinary nonprofit he founded that helps economically disadvantaged young adults gain skills for professional careers. GERALD CHERTAVIAN MBA 1992
5 TIMELINE Born, Lowell, Massachusetts 1987 Earns BA, Economics, Bowdoin College 1987 Joins Chemical Bank 1992 Earns MBA 1993 Cofounds Conduit Communications 1999 i-cube buys Conduit My goal is to reduce the number of young people who are disconnected from mainstream opportunity in this country Launches Year Up Clockwise, from top left: Chertavian visits with Harvard students; in his Cambridge kitchen; with mentee Akeem Raphael, a Year Up graduate who works at HBS Publishes A Year Up, which becomes a best seller 2013 Named Chairman, Roxbury Community College Board of Trustees 2014 Year Up will serve 2,100 young adults Chertavian s inspiration for Year Up stems from his experience as a volunteer in the Big Brother Big Sister program. After earning a degree in economics from Bowdoin College, Chertavian worked at Chemical Bank in New York City, where he volunteered as a mentor to 10-year-old David Heredia. Seeing the divide between Heredia s potential and his prospects, Chertavian was determined to help expand options for Heredia and kids like him. I saw that David had enormous talent and drive, but he needed help to reach his full potential, says Chertavian, adding an explanation that clarifies the name of his organization. He needed a handup, not a handout. With mentoring and support from Chertavian, Heredia was able to graduate from high school, attend college, and pursue his passion for art. Twenty-six years after they first met, the two remain close friends and have much in common: Heredia has a successful career (as an animator), is happily married, is a proud father of three, and recently signed up to be a Big Brother. Interested in expanding his own skills so that he could put his ideas and ideals into action, Chertavian followed in the footsteps of his older brother and applied to HBS. In his application essay, he outlined his vision for building an organization that would offer disadvantaged youth a year of training and then place them in meaningful jobs with partnering corporations. As a student at HBS, Chertavian continued to pursue his interest in closing what he calls the opportunity divide. I was fanatical, he recalls. All I thought about was enabling young people to go from poverty to a professional career in one year. Upon graduation, he moved to London, the hometown of his new wife, Kate, where he ran marketing for a financial services firm before cofounding Conduit Communications, a consulting firm focused on the nascent field of Internet marketing. He spent several years building Conduit into one of Europe s fastest-growing technology companies, eventually counting 130 employees around the globe and $20 million in annual revenue. In 1999, Chertavian and his partners sold Conduit to i- Cube, and he was able to put all his energy into realizing his dream. Ready to return to the Boston area, where Kate had gone to college, the Chertavians moved to Cambridge with their first two (of three) children, and Gerald began to use his network to put the building blocks of Year Up in place. Since founding Year Up in 2000, Gerald Chertavian has steadily grown the endeavor from its initial class of 22 students. The nonprofit now operates in 12 cities across the United States, employs 400, and has an annual budget of $70 million. While those numbers as well as rave reviews from the media and corporate partners tell of the organization s success, Chertavian s most prized metric shows the outcomes for the 18- through 24-year-olds that Year Up has served: Some 10,000 young people have participated in the one-year training program, and 85 percent of graduates are working or in school full time within four months of graduation. Chertavian, who didn t take a salary for six years, says that Year Up works not because of charity, but because the program s participants are providing meaningful skills. The leaders of some 250 partner organizations, including State Street, Facebook, and Bank of America, have literally opened the door of opportunity to thousands of young people, says Chertavian. If those individuals did not deliver on their promise, he observes, Year Up would not be expanding. Our success is because these young adults are economic assets, not social liabilities.
6 07 COFOUNDER, CHAIRMAN, AND CEO, ALTIOSTAR NETWORKS, INC. As a kid growing up in Mumbai, surrounded by a large extended family, Ash Dahod read Reader s Digest from cover to cover. That was my view of life in the United States, says Dahod. I was fascinated. The thumbnail version of Dahod s journey has many elements that would make a compelling story for the upbeat weekly: the value of education, changing the world through entrepreneurship, and finding meaning by helping others. ASHRAF M. DAHOD MBA 1981

You have to let people stumble. If you interfere, they won t learn Cofounds Sigma Network Systems 1991 Founds Nu-Link, Inc Cofounds NetCore Systems 2000 Cofounds Starent Networks 2007 Starent Networks IPO 2009 Cisco buys Starent Networks 2012 Cofounds Altiostar Networks Dahod s first taste of entrepreneurship came as a teenager, when he helped his physician father produce and distribute medication that he had formulated. I saw that he made more money in his business than working as a doctor, says Dahod, whose parents moved to the United States to help their four children to acquire an American education. Dahod, arriving in Ann Arbor, Michigan, at the age of 20, surpassed their high expectations, earning five academic degrees, covering physics, engineering, and eventually, management. No one person can build a company, says Dahod, reflecting that one of the most difficult moments in his career was when he sold Starent to Cisco and decided to build a new team. I felt a moral obligation to keep the team together so they could continue our success as part of Cisco, but it meant I had to build Altiostar from scratch, he says. By all accounts, Dahod has met the challenge. Altiostar is still in stealth mode, but the press recently reported that it had received a $50 million vote of confidence from Cisco. Clockwise, from top right: Dahod leads a meeting in his Tewksbury office; in Altiostar s data center; at home with his wife, Shamim. Dahod describes HBS s case method as a shock to my system, and remembers a dark day in Aldrich Hall during his first year when he was called to open all three case discussions. Earning his MBA, he says, changed his life: I arrived at HBS as an introverted engineer. When I left, I was an extroverted marketer. After graduation, he turned down a position with Salomon Brothers in order to launch his own venture, Applitek, developing a cable modem. The year was 1981, a full decade before most of the world had even heard of the technology, and the company soon had $12 million in sales. Over the next 30-plus years, Dahod built five additional companies, each capitalizing on his own insights into technology and what the future would require be it high-speed switching (Sigma Networks), high-speed routers (Netcore Systems), mobile networks (Starent), or LTE communication (Altiostar). I look at where customers are and where they will be three to five years from now, he says simply. I try to be objective and analytical as I look for market and technological discontinuities, he adds, noting that comfort with risk, acceptance of failure, and a willingness to face rejection are job requirements for entrepreneurs. Dahod and his wife of 41 years, Shamim, and their two married daughters and two grandchildren are devout Shia Muslims who feel fortunate to be living in the United States, where they can practice their religion without restrictions. One of the key tenets of their belief system emphasizes helping others. Their support for education and health care particularly for underserved populations can be seen in the Boston area as well as in Mumbai, where the couple met as teenagers. Working with Shamim, a medical doctor who has survived two bouts with cancer, Ash Dahod has funded projects at Lowell General Hospital, Boston University, and Boston Medical Center. In Mumbai, the Dahod family helped build Saifee Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility that offers subsidized care for people in need, and they are involved in an upliftment project to provide new homes for 3,200 families by redeveloping a densely populated 16.5 acres of dilapidated buildings in the heart of Mumbai. By bringing the same entrepreneurial spirit and passion for learning to his philanthropic endeavors as he does to his businesses, Dahod has helped countless others improve their lives. I believe that you have to run your business to optimize its value, he says. Whatever you gain from that, you need to put toward helping society.
8 11 FOUNDER, CHAIRWOMAN, AND CEO, CARE.COM As a child in the Philippines, Sheila Marcelo grew up watching her parents run a variety of entrepreneurial endeavors. At age seven, when she accompanied her mother and father to the rice mill they ran, she spent her time asking the workers questions about their jobs. I was very curious, says Marcelo, who ultimately followed in her parents footsteps, building the successful online marketplace Care.com. SHEILA LIRIO MARCELO MBA 1998/JD 1999
9 TIMELINE Born, Manila, Philippines 1993 Earns BA, Economics, Mount Holyoke College 1999 Earns JD/MBA 1999 Joins HBS as Teaching Fellow 2000 Joins Upromise 2005 Joins TheLadders At the core of everything we do, whether building a product or delivering a service, are the people behind it. Relationships are what matter Joins Matrix Partners as EIR 2006 Founds Care.com 2009 Named one of Fortune s Top 10 Women Entrepreneurs 2011 Named Young Global Leader, World Economic Forum 2012 Launches WomenUp as Henry Crown Fellow 2014 Care.com IPO Clockwise, from top right: Marcelo leads an all-team meeting at Care.com; at home with her younger son, Adam; in her Waltham office. Marcelo, the fifth of six children, was raised in a tight-knit family. Her parents, who eloped in their late teens, did not fall into stereotypical gender roles. My father was the one who stood by the window and waved goodbye until he couldn t see me anymore, says Marcelo, who learned math alongside her older brothers. They did not have certain expectations just because I was a girl, she recalls. As a student at Mount Holyoke College, Marcelo attended a cross-college function for Filipino students and met Ron Marcelo, a student at Yale. The pair married and had a son, Ryan, while both remained in college. When the young family moved to Boston, Marcelo deferred her admission to Harvard Law School in order to gain litigation experience. That gave me exposure to strategic consulting and business, says Marcelo, who applied to HBS during her first year of law school. Grad school was not an easy time for me, she reflects. I was juggling being a mother and wife, working [for Monitor Group], and studying, she says, noting that the fact that Ron was also earning his MBA at HBS was an asset. The pair took Ryan to HBS s day-care facility on their way to class each day, discussing coursework and cases in their spare moments. After working as a teaching fellow at HBS for a year and delivering her second son, Marcelo joined Upromise, a start-up that helps families save money for college. I was the eighth employee, and I consider that period my general management tour of duty, says Marcelo, who found enthusiastic mentors at the young company and was soon asked to join the management team. Also during this time, a frightening family incident helped shape Marcelo s future. While carrying her younger son down the stairs, her father had a heart attack and fell backwards. Both survived, but the event instigated a crisis in care. My parents had come to help us with child care, and I found myself worrying about both child and senior care, she says. I was working at an Internet technology company and using the yellow pages to try to figure out how to find care for my family. That contradiction was not lost on the budding entrepreneur. Marcelo s family emergency shed light on a market need that she wanted to fill. After a stint at TheLadders, she accepted a position as an entrepreneur in residence at Matrix Partners. There she crafted her business plan for Care.com, which she launched in Care.com brings together Marcelo s passion for helping others and her entrepreneurial and management skills, to enable working families to find the care they need. More than 11 million people across 16 countries now use the service to find help with their children, parents, pets, and homes. We help families achieve their aspirations by giving them peace of mind in helping their loved ones, says Marcelo, whose philanthropic endeavors focus on women, entrepreneurship, education, and helping those in need in the Philippines. With hard work and determination, Sheila Marcelo has built an enormously successful entrepreneurial venture that has helped millions of families manage their lives. Earlier this year, Marcelo rang the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange, surrounded by family and colleagues. It was very emotional, she says of Care.com s IPO. We have built an incredible team of people that is making an impact on the lives of families, and we are also helping companies and economies.
10 15 FOUNDER AND CEO, PROVIDENCE EQUITY PARTNERS, LLC As a partner at Narragansett Capital in 1987, Jonathan Nelson was unable to convince his colleagues to invest in a regional cellular company. I knew it was a good investment, but I had no idea mobile would reach 100 percent market penetration, he says. Interested in building media companies with like-minded partners, Nelson branched out on his own in 1989, forming what has become one of the world s leading private equity firms. JONATHAN M. NELSON MBA 1983
11 TIMELINE Born, Providence, Rhode Island 1977 Earns BS, Economics, Brown University 1977 Joins Wellman International to work in China 1983 Earns MBA 1983 Joins Narragansett Capital 1989 Founds Providence Equity Partners In a music course at Brown, surrounded by classmates with perfect pitch, I came to appreciate the power of distinctive competencies Begins office expansion to EU and Asia Clockwise, from top left: Nelson in the Nelson Fitness Center at Brown University; with two of his three daughters, Sasha and Katja; in his Providence office Providence expands into credit business 2014 Providence has 275 employees and $40 billion under management The decision to specialize in media and communications in 1985 might seem prescient, but the low-key Nelson claims he was merely following his passion. I ve always been drawn to it, says Nelson, who majored in economics at Brown University but also studied music and hosted a late-night jazz radio show. When he graduated from college, Nelson took a job with Boston-based Wellman International and immediately set off for China. I had no idea what I was getting into, he says. But it was a chance to cut my teeth in business and to see the world. At the time, Deng Xiaoping was beginning to modernize the Chinese economy. I was there about 30 years too early, says Nelson, who left in 1980 to move to Sweden, where he married his girlfriend. Nelson came to HBS to gain the tools to transition into the industry now called private equity. I learned some business skills, but more importantly, I learned about people, he says of his time at HBS. With his new MBA, Nelson joined Narragansett, one of the few firms in the burgeoning industry and the only one in his home state of Rhode Island. Most people didn t even know what private equity was, he says. I had no idea that it would mushroom the way it did. I was just doing what I wanted to do. Six years later, Nelson launched Providence Equity. Over the last 25 years, he and his partners have earned and sustained a reputation as brilliant investors with a remarkable ability to build successful companies. While Nelson tries to keep a low profile, Providence, with offices around the world, competes with larger, global firms. With the success of the firm and $40 billion under management, staying under the radar isn t as easy as it was in the early days. Providence s current investments include wireless towers in India, Brazil, and Africa; digital television in Turkey; Hong Kong s largest broadcaster; an award-winning video game developer; and the biggest name in endurance sports, IRONMAN, to name a few. In the United States, Nelson helped create one of the largest wireless companies, VoiceStream Wireless (now called T-Mobile USA), and also launched Hulu and the Yankees Entertainment and Sports Network (although Nelson admits to being an avid Red Sox fan). By following his passion, Jonathan Nelson has achieved extraordinary success. He has also generously donated to causes dedicated to education, arts, health, and the environment and has agreed to give away half his net worth by committing to the Giving Pledge. His support for health and research reflects the significant challenges he has faced. The discovery and treatment of a benign brain tumor dominated his second year at HBS. A decade later, his wife died of cancer, leaving him to raise their three young daughters. I am enormously proud of my daughters, says Nelson, a devoted father who served on the school board and came home in time to put the girls to bed when they were young. They are grounded, smart, and kind and far ahead of where I was at their age. His love and respect for Judy, his second wife, also brings him great joy. In marriage, I ve been lucky twice. This is something to be thankful for. Nelson grew up in a middle-class family in Providence. As a kid, I wanted to be a carpenter, he says, noting that long-range plans don t usually work out, and observing that in his career he has focused on building things in a different way. I have spent 30 years working with some of the most talented people in industry our CEOs and their teams as well as my own partners. It s been fun, productive, and rewarding.
12 19 CHAIRMAN AND CEO, CORNING INCORPORATED As CEO of Corning Incorporated, Wendell Weeks manages to celebrate the company s 163-year history while keeping razor-sharp focus on the future. Although the products have changed over the years from the glass bulbs for Thomas Edison s electric light to the cover glass in Apple s iphones Weeks sees a steady pattern of innovation paired with an old-fashioned commitment to values. WENDELL P. WEEKS MBA 1987
13 TIMELINE Born, Reno, Nevada 1981 Earns BS, Accounting, Lehigh University 1983 Joins Corning 1987 Earns MBA 2001 Named President, Corning Optical Communications 2002 Named President and COO, Corning 2005 Named CEO, Corning If you are going to continue to make a difference, you have to learn new things all the time. Clockwise, from top left: Weeks at an employee awards lunch; with his wife, HBS sectionmate Kim Frock; with his son, Porter, at the Corning Museum of Glass Named Chairman, Corning 2007 Corning markets Gorilla Glass 2013 Fast Company names Corning one of World s 50 Most Innovative Companies It was these values that first appealed to Weeks when he arrived at Corning as a Price Waterhouse consultant after graduating from Lehigh University. I was impressed with the people and what the company stood for, he recalls. The feeling was mutual: Corning asked him to join its corporate control group. Two years later, on the eve of his departure to attend HBS, Weeks was called into the office of CEO Jamie Houghton (MBA 1962). As Weeks tells it, Houghton, whose storied family had run the company since 1851, asked him to return to Corning after HBS. I shook his hand and said yes. And here I am, 28 years later. That simple moment launched Weeks s career, and it also had a deep impact on Corning s future as a successful innovator in materials science. The first in his family to go to college, Weeks thrived at HBS. The case method pretend doing, as he calls it gave him a way to test out leadership skills without consequences. HBS taught me the most important skill: to learn, he says. Also at Soldiers Field, he managed to sit next to Kim Frock (MBA 1987) on his first day. The pair, who found they had much in common, will soon celebrate their 25th anniversary. Upon returning to Corning, Weeks held a series of positions that helped him understand the complexities of the company from shift supervisor in a manufacturing plant, to new product development, to business development. Weeks, a quick study, has 26 patents pending despite a lack of formal science training. A good salesman who understands business, he distills complicated ideas down to their essence, and, as one colleague put it, possesses a forward-looking vision. Named a vice president in 1996, Weeks ran the company s optical communications division and invested heavily in the technology, riding the tech boom and providing the fiber cables that brought the Internet into millions of homes in the 1990s. Like so many companies, Corning was caught by surprise when the telecommunications bubble burst. Its stock tumbled, from more than $100 to about a dollar per share. That was the darkest time in Corning s history, says Weeks. Jamie Houghton once again called Weeks into his office, and the younger man braced himself to be demoted by his mentor. But Houghton, like Weeks, believes in learning from failure. His basic theory was, if you broke it, you fix it, says Weeks, who was able to do exactly that, bringing Corning back from the brink of failure through a painful restructuring and commitment to both innovation and the diversification of its product lines. We make products that change the world, he says, noting Corning s development of LCD glass; tools to facilitate drug discovery; clean-air technologies; and Corning Gorilla Glass, the scratch-resistant, lightweight cover glass that is now used in nearly 3 billion devices around the world. An imposing figure at 6 feet 5 inches, with a confident gait and a winning record, Wendell Weeks is surprisingly open about his own self-doubt. In any given day, there are moments when I am a good leader and there are moments when I am not, he admits. Having devoted his entire career to Corning both the company and the small town where it sits on the Chemung River Weeks s success is hard to miss, whether measured in employee satisfaction, innovation, shareholder return, or the many local causes he supports. What matters most to him is people. As individuals, we have very little meaning, he observes. We find our meaning through how we serve others and our relationships.
