The California-based law firm of Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP has joined with Presidio Graduate School to sponsor Presidio’s annual Capstone Program. The Capstone Program supports and showcases new sustainable businesses and policies designed by teams of Presidio Masters of Business Administration, Masters of Public Administration, and dual MBA/MPA degree candidates. The Capstone Program consists of the MBA Capstone Entrepreneurship Course and the MPA Capstone Policy Innovation Course, culminating at the end of each semester with a Capstone Showcase attracting over 300 Presidio students, faculty and alumni as well as investors, executives and other Bay Area business and public sector leaders.
“We are delighted to welcome Allen Matkins into the Presidio fold,” explains Presidio President and CEO William Shutkin. “They’re a growing presence in CleanTech and sustainable business in California and the perfect partner for our Capstone Program.”
As part of its sponsorship, Allen Matkins will host a special reception at its downtown San Francisco offices in conjunction with each Capstone Showcase event. The reception will provide an opportunity for select Presidio Capstone teams and alumni to meet potential investors and other key partners, drawing from Allen Matkins and Presidio’s diverse pool of investment firms, government agencies and non-profit organizations.
"The Capstone Program is creating new business opportunities for individuals and communities," said Geoffrey Perusse, an attorney at Allen Matkins. "We are excited to participate as a catalyst bringing innovative business ideas, investors and policy makers together."
