Episode 008: Vision & Ingenuity with Tech Titan Zach Hunter

November 28, 2016

Ingenuity and vision. Two staples of becoming a successful entrepreneur (and bus driver). Our most recent guest has them both. Let us introduce - Zach Hunter. A visionary and a creator, Zach went from developing shirt companies in high school to launching phone apps in college. His app has reached higher than 15th for food and dining in the Itunes App Store and can be found on 250 campuses nationwide.

He and his co-founder recently gave a TED talk on Risk Taking. Now he's here to share a conversation with you, our audience. In this convo you'll hear some of his public speaking secrets (spoiler alert: make them laugh), the thought process he puts into the outlook of a new idea, and what his spirit animal is.
