He was formerly an Entrepreneur-in Residence at White Star Capital - a global venture capital fund that has made over 20 investments in more than 7 countries. He was the Co-Chair of Canadian Music Week and was awarded the Top 30 Under 30 for Music by Forbes Magazine for his influence in the music industry in 2014. Derrick graduated with High Distinction from the University of Toronto Scarborough Management Co-op program and was awarded the Gordon Cressy Leadership Award for outstanding extra-curricular involvement.   An expert in security analytics, cyber defensive methods, and threat & vulnerability management, Mr. Han has been a Partner in the cybersecurity advisory practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers since 2016. He had three relevant co-ops which prepared him for this challenging and timely work. He worked as a Web Designer with SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals (now GlaxoSmithKline), where he learned the importance of producing quality work and maintaining deadlines; as an IT Special Projects Intern at Elf Atochem (now Arkema), where he learned the value of relationships and the importance of a professional network; and as an IT Risk Consultant Intern at Arthur Anderson, where he learned how work ethic, grit and being personable can be seen more valuable than academic intelligence. These positions paved the way for him to become the youngest Asian-American to make partner at his firm.   A Portfolio Analyst for Independence Blue Cross, Ms. Harris has focused primarily on project management throughout her 20 years of specializing in information technology for the healthcare, insurance, and telecommunications industries. Her IT career began with co-op positions at Rohm and Haas followed by Comcast. At Rohm and Haas, she was one of the first women to work in their Network Operations Center. Her co-op experiences gave her real world IT experience that prepared her to enter the industry. In 2017, she established the Angela V. Harris Scholarship Fund at Drexel University to support African American female students studying in the College of Computing and Informatics.   Trent Hathaway completed his cooperative education with Ulliman Schutte Construction, LLC, assisting with construction projects in the Washington, D.C. area.
