Special thanks to Chase Garbarino, CEO and Co-founder of Streetwise Media, parent company of BostInno, for kicking off the semester with us! Chase discussed how to network effectively in Boston, highlighting the best events to check out. When asked how him and his partner finally got the company going, he replied “How did we do it? We grinded. We didn’t just put it up and wait for people to start using it.”
Members were tasked with helping BostInno promote the jobs page on their website to college students. Members got the opportunity to pitch their suggestions directly to Chase, which included social media and pulling off crazy stunts on campuses. Chase was convinced, and mentioned that he would consider that in their marketing strategy.
