Wake Smith

Wake Smith graduated from Yale College in 1979. He sang with the Alley Cats and the Glee Club, and played lacrosse (badly). After earning an MBA at a forlorn institution whose motto inexplicably lost its “Lux et”, he spent a career in commercial aviation and finance. He teaches a residential college seminar at Yale on Venture Capital and Private Equity, and writes on the logistics and costs of solar radiation management and geo engineering.
