A big thanks to Lee Hower, Co-Founder & Partner of NextView Ventures, for joining us this evening! Lee shared his experiences as an entrepreneur and a venture capitalist. One key piece of advice that he shared was “it’s more important to pick your boss than pick your job. Think about someone you can do well with and collaborate with, and you’ll love what you do no matter what because of that.”
Huge thanks to Jordan Fliegel, CEO and Founder of CoachUp, for coming out to speak with us this evening. Jordan shared his fundraising tips and tricks and shared one key piece of advice: “The best thing is to build good relationships with good entrepreneurs, and the best way to do that is internships and opportunities in college.”
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!).
