ABOUT THE TALK: 
The ability to create, launch, and run your own business has never been easier, with tools and resources at your disposal. However, how do you cultivate those opportunities, and how do you even find them to begin with? An entrepreneur's strength lies not only in their ability to believe in the dream before anyone else, but to find them in their infancy and cultivate them.

In this talk, you'll hear from entrepreneurs Jared Glatter and Will Schwing on the habits, tools, and trends they use to find new opportunities, methods for evaluating the potential of those opportunities, and how to grow them into something real.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS: 

Serial entrepreneurs, gourmands and irreverent best friends, Jared Glatter and Will Schwing met when they were both attending college in Santa Barbara, Ca. Studying Business and Marketing, their first venture gained public notoriety when they won a business plan competition and received more than $100,000 in promissory funding, all before graduating. They have since gone on to research, strategize, plot, plan, scheme, and launch a number of other ventures, both for themselves and for others. In 2015 they launched a men's leather footwear company, Tawny Goods with a Kickstarter campaign, receiving more than 230% of it's necessary funding.

Most recently, they won a grant to from cognac maker Remy Martin, hosted by popular websites Gear Patrol and Cool Hunting, to compete in one of the nation's oldest festivals. The subject of that competition? Fried chicken.

Jared and Will both live in Los Angeles with their wives and dogs, who love and loathe their obsessive personalities.
