We’re thrilled to host two panels of successful entrepreneurs at our Washington D.C. campus on October 23rd and Baltimore campus on October 24th. We hope you’ll join us to hear more about what it takes to start your own business. Panelists will discuss their thoughts on “Ideation to Creation for Early Stage Entrepreneurs.”

Hearing another person’s story and tips on how to get started might be the fuel you need to take the next step towards your entrepreneurial vision. Below I’ve included great quotes and insights from founders of brands you’ll recognize:

“You have to see failure as the beginning and the middle, but never entertain it as an end.”
Jessica Herrin, Founder and CEO of Stella & Dot

“If we tried to think of a good idea, we wouldn’t have been able to think of a good idea. You just have to find the solution for a problem in your own life.”
Brian Chesky, Co-founder of Airbnb

“When you are building a startup, it’s difficult. Particularly, a startup that is expanding at the rate of Tinder. You have to give 100%, and you have to be committed. Solving the problem has to be personal or else you’re going to disintegrate.”
-Sean Rad, Co-founder of Tinder, Inc.

I wonder what new gems of wisdom and tweetable insights will be shared; come find out!
