Aldo Petruzzelli, Luke Emano, and I (Toni Witt) moved into the GENESIS house last week! We’re opening up the space to anyone who wants to work, hang out, or host events themselves.
We want the space to be a resource for GenZ entrepreneurs. It’s got a nice kitchen, dining capacity for 12, full projector & sound system, and a popcorn machine. Reach out to me or Andrew Gunderman if you want to host something! (a b-day party, a dinner, movie, a launch, even just a casual hang…)
the GENESIS Private Dinner Series is spinning up, and they’ll be hosted at the house… we have one coming up on Sept 6th (at full capacity). If you want to join a future dinner, you can drop an application for any dates that work for you via our Luma. No promises, we have very limited seats.
A bunch of us GENESIS Chicago folks are headed to SF for TechCrunch Disrupt 2023 from Sept 18-22nd! Join us - we’ll be hosting daily dinners, helping each other make the right connections throughout the conference, and exploring the city together.
We’re also hosting the event listed above - already 80 rsvps from top media reps & founders.
Hi, I'm Jonathan Spungen, Co-Founder and CEO of LetzGo. LetzGo brings AI technologies to brick and mortar businesses, and packages the tools in a friendly, affordable way to empower: data-driven decisions, work automations, and personalized customer experiences. LetzGo is looking for partnerships and advice from brick and mortar businesses and retail experts.
In my spare time I enjoy playing board games like chess and meeting up with friends. I co-founded a group for founders to play sports together -- let me know if you'd like to join! Additionally, I'm on the Young Professional Board of the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education center. Interesting fact: I was one of the top 4-player chess players in the world, and I've done some crazy, random things in life you can ask me about! Feel free to reach out to me. Email: [email protected]
(Jon lives in Chicago and comes to many of the GENESIS events. Say hi if you see him!)
Thank you for reading this edition of the GENESIS newsletter! See you soon🙏
