This might be the greatest job ever if …

  • You’ve dreamed about running a business …
    • Maybe you majored in a supposedly unemployable major like Ancient Mediterranean Civilizations, while running a side hustle on stockx selling sneakers
    • Or you enjoyed getting your business degree, but were disappointed in how little about ‘business’ you learned at your summer investment banking internship
    • You probably could get a job at a global consulting firm, but you think you might learn more about how businesses operate by running a food truck than by making Powerpoints
  • … but recognize you still need to learn about a few things … 
    • You want to learn about e-commerce and consumer internet business models
    • You want to learn about (and apply) the fundamentals of marketing, operations and finance for a business
