GENESIS Tech Week Lakefront Lū’au, Fighter Pilot workshop on Storytelling for Entrepreneurs
Welcome back to the weekly GENESIS newsletter👋
To kick off today’s edition here’s a quote from a famous business columinist George Burton Adams. He was also an elevator operator in Chicago once…
“There is no such thing as a “self-made” man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.”
Food for thought as we march on through the Chicago summer!
What happened last week?
Bryan Wilcox, co-founder and ex-CTO of Tovala (raised $70M) came by for an intimate roundtable about product-driven growth and fundraising. It was great chatting informally with someone who you wouldn’t usually have access to as a young founder.
GENESIS x Approachable All-Women Changemakers Dinner Experience🙏 shoutout to our private chefs Nate and Natalie who made the evening a wonderful experience. Can’t wait to host more in future…
The fun ain’t over yet. If you like fire dancing at night, lakeside Hawaiian BBQ, and volleyball — you’re going to love what we’re putting together for tech week:
After the fun is over, the grind continues…
If you’re an entrepreneur, a creator, an artist, or an influencer, you will have to tell stories. Being a good storyteller is one of those meta skills that will help you in almost every situation.
Joining us for a special intimate workshop is Dan Manning, an ex- fighter pilot and speechwriter for the Air Force who is now an expert at helping entrepreneurs tell their story. You do NOT want to miss this one. He’ll take your career/business/life and make a novel out of it, on the spot.
Thank you for reading this week’s edition of the GENESIS newsletter! Stay tuned because we have some big events coming to finish the summer🏖️
