While attending Brown, Abhishek Pruisken found himself missing the traditional stroopwafel he enjoyed back home in Amsterdam — so he decided to make his own. A decade later, the product of his dorm-room epiphany can be found at more than 12,000 Starbucks locations across the country. In a talk, Pruisken shares his entrepreneurial journey, from hyperlocal startup to national success. RSVP required. Crystal Ballroom, Alumnae Hall, 194 Meeting Street.
