Special thanks to Roger Berkowitz, CEO and President of Legal Sea Foods, for speaking with us tonight! In order to focus on the next generation of customers, Legal Sea Foods released a series of controversial advertisements that even caught nationwide media attention. Roger ended the meeting by saying “The one thing I’ve really learned is that you have to look at what you truly do best, what you have not yet done and to fully exploit the opportunities you have”.
Special thanks to Derrick Cheung, CEO and Founder of Green Street Vault, for speaking with us tonight! Derrick addressed that it is important for entrepreneurs to be flexible, as external forces will often throw wrenches into your business (In Derrick’s case, the mobile permit for his truck), but if you are able to handle the challenges, your business will inevitably reach even greater heights (He ended up touring with ASAP Rocky!).
Huge thanks to James DiSabatino, Owner of Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, for coming out to speak with us! James drew on the metaphor that entrepreneurship is a chess match, and entrepreneurs constantly have to be watching their opponents and prepare to outwit them. James left us urging us not to fear failure, as settling for mediocrity is far worse than failure.
Special thanks to Chris O’Donnell, Director of Product Management of Hubspot, for speaking with us tonight! Chris highlighted the importance of not only finding good ideas, but is more important to decide which ones to pursue, by working with customer and delivering what they want. Chris left us saying, “Product management isn’t about going off in a corner and building some huge spec. It’s about going off those around you and building something great one piece at a time”.
