Founder Fridays: Grant Gurtin ‘12, How to Start a Company During College

April 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join us for a discussion with Grant Gurtin ’12, a former BEO concentrator, founder of Fanium, and active angel investor. Grant came to Brown expecting to earn a Ph.D. in Math, but when he arrived in Providence, he was unsure about his passion for that material and like many college students, was unsure of his future. Soon, he found an entrepreneurial community on campus and took ENGN 1010, the Entrepreneurial Process with Danny Warshay, which jump started his startup career. REGISTER HERE.

After ENGN 1010, Grant started a fantasy football company, Fanium, that he ultimately sold to CBSSports. He then spent two years at CBSSports, helping to relaunch the brand and take it from zero to $500k in monthly recurring revenue. He has since started a second company, Verb.Me, that connects brands with social media influencers who can spread the word about their products.

Grant will discuss how he started a company while at Brown and how he now evaluates startups as an angel investor.

All of our events are open to the public.
