Abby Speicher Carroll swam with the sharks in February—and came away with a great deal. Abby appeared on the ABC show Shark Tank, pitching her drone training company DARTdrones, which offers classes for drone pilots. Shark Mark Cuban bit, offering Abby $300,000 in exchange for 10 percent ownership in the company she founded in 2014 while at Babson. She emails, “My Babson education truly made me feel ready to pitch to the Sharks. I was more nervous about the Sharks crashing my drone on set than about answering their questions.”
