5 Reasons Millennial Entrepreneurs Need Mentors
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This is a multi-part series written by Blackstone LaunchPad student and young alumni entrepreneurs. The Blackstone Charitable Foundation directs its resources to foster entrepreneurship, supporting its signature program Blackstone LaunchPad to encourage and support entrepreneurship on college campuses for over 500,000 students world-wide. Mentorship has always played a big role in my life. I've been a mentor, needed a mentor, found wonderful mentors, and rely on the support of others at almost every step of my journey. This was never more clear than in college, when my brother Jordan and I founded our company, SeekU, which provides mentorship to high school students applying to college. If we were going to succeed, we knew we would need the right support system. By that point I had learned that one or two strong mentors were required for each project's success - the marketing professor I'd consult when I started an American Advertising Federation chapter on my college campus, th ...

Kim Kardashian's Startup ShoeDazzle Gets Bought, But Investors May Not Be Thrilled
Business Insider - over 3 years
ShoeDazzle, a subscription e-commerce company founded by Brian Lee, Robert Shapiro, and Kim Kardashian, has merged with one of its biggest competitors, JustFab. PandoDaily first reported the deal talks Tuesday evening. Details of the merger aren't being disclosed, although both Lee and JustFab co-CEO Adam Goldenberg claim investors are "very happy." That's hard to believe, given that ShoeDazzle raised $66 million when it was the category leader and was once worth $240 million.  Now its valuation is significantly less. The PandoDaily report pegged ShoeDazzle's new valuation between $10 million and $30 million. That estimate is too low, Lee and his investors say, but they haven't offered a rosier figure either. PandoDaily also reported that ShoeDazzle's investors will only own 4% of the new company. Lee says that's "completely wrong." One of ShoeDazzle's investors, Lightspeed Venture Partner's Jeremy Lieu, told VentureWire that ShoeDazzle is currently worth "well north of $30 ...

Kai Sato: Rap Stars, Ball Players and Tech Entrepreneurs
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Each year at the ESPYs, some of the biggest names in sports are seen fraternizing with some of the biggest names in music. As Grammy winner Drake says in his song "Thank Me Now": "I swear sports and music are so synonymous 'cause we wanna be them and they wanna be us." What's not as evident is how sports and music are also closely aligned with today's technology entrepreneurs. The mentality that leads athletes and rappers to championships and platinum records, respectively, is often the same mentality of technology entrepreneurs en route to IPOs. For instance, after the Miami Heat won this year's NBA championship, Drake rapped and partied with the team. The rapper who "started from the bottom" is likely to relate to LeBron James, who was raised by a single mother in Akron, Ohio. But Drake's words also resonate with hordes of technology entrepreneurs hoping to emulate Steve Jobs, the orphaned college dropout who started from a garage and went onto create the world's mos ...

Two Of LA's Buzziest Startups, BeachMint and ShoeDazzle, Were In Talks To Merge
Business Insider - over 4 years
BeachMint and ShoeDazzle are both flashy fashion startups in Los Angeles that have raised gobs of outside capital -- $73.5 million and $60 million respectively. Recently, both have experienced management turnover and multiple sources say there was a period of time, about three or four months ago, when the two e-commerce companies discussed merging. If the merger had happened, BeachMint would have likely acquired ShoeDazzle. Neither ShoeDazzle nor BeachMint explicitly denied the merger talks, although both confirmed there's currently no deal in the works. "There is no truth to any BeachMint/ShoeDazzle merger," ShoeDazzle's newly reinstated CEO, Brian Lee, told Business Insider via email. He co-founded ShoeDazzle with reality star Kim Kardashian. "We have had strategic partnership meetings in the past as I am very close friends with Josh Bermna and Diego Berdakin." "Haha no mergers over here," BeachMint's CEO Diego Berdakin also told Business Insider. But if the idea of a me ...

Gehry, Gang and other leading architects urge Emanuel to save old Prentice Women's Hospital
Chicago Times - over 4 years
Los Angeles architect Frank Gehry and Chicago architect Jeanne Gang are among more than 60 prominent architects, educators and historic preservationists who on Wednesday urged Mayor Rahm Emanuel to save architect Bertrand Goldberg's old Prentice Women's Hospital and grant city landmark status to the threatened structure. The message, sent in a letter to the mayor and made available to the Tribune on Thursday, said: "As members of the architecture community, we believe Goldberg's Prentice should be given a permanent place in Chicago's cityscape. A building this significant--this unique in the world--should be preserved and reused." Northwestern University wants to tear down the vacant 1975 building, whose cantilevered concrete shells soar over a steel-and-glass base, to make way for a medical research tower that is not yet funded. But old Prentice, located at 333 E. Superior St., has been in limbo since June, 2011 when the city's landmarks commission tabled a vote on whether to gran ...

Extreme Archive: ECW Television Episode 015
Inside Pulse- Wrestling - almost 5 years
As I am such a big ECW fan, and (still) living in the Philadelphia region, maybe some of you are wondering if I am attending the Extreme Reunion event this weekend? Well, I will not be in attendance, and here’s why: As we all know, the real ECW ended it’s run in 2001. In the following years, I was unable to find a wrestling replacement for that federation that I loved so much 1. In those years, I sat there, and wished that I could go back in time, just once, to feel what I used to feel… if only one more time. Well, in 2005 I got that opportunity. I happily dropped $100 to see the first Hardcore Homecoming show with my buddy Michael 2, who had gone to a few ECW events with me. I watched the show. I cheered, laughed, and shouted my ass off. And as all of us in the ECW Arena that night sang “Enter Sandman” during The Sandman’s entrance, I thanked the wrestling gods for letting me step back in time one more time. The card was average at best, but was pure nostalgia, and I loved every min ...

New London Tube: Cream Puff Powder Man
New London Patch - almost 5 years
Full disclosure: although the Patch office tends to be "wherever it needs to be," there's a good chance you can catch me parked at Bean and Leaf if I need to get some work done. And there are plenty of times when I've run into videographer Andrew Proctor, who sometimes has a new piece of work to share. He's been politely asking me to put this video up, and since New London Tube is a good place to feature local musicians I finally said OK. Don't worry, the entire thing's not upside-down, though it is pretty colorful. The band plays on rooftops and porches around downtown New London and on a Pequot Avenue beach, mostly during that "magic hour" around sunset. Let Patch save you time.
