Renowned entrepreneurs share insights at Colgate University


HAMILTON This past Friday, April 11, Colgate University hosted the opening night of its Entrepreneur Weekend. David Faber, CNBC anchor/producer, led an exciting panel that included Tony Bates, Executive VP of Microsoft; Brian Chesky, co-founder and CEO of Airbnb; Ashton Kutcher, actor/ producer and co-founder of Katalyst; and Daniel Rosensweig, President and CEO of Chegg. John Donahoe, President and CEO of eBay, was a surprise guest. Very informative and often humorous, the panel discussed the makings of a great entrepreneur and reflected on their own experiences. The group seemed to come to a consensus that fearlessness, grit, intelligence, the ability to build a team, and a willingness to learn are the main traits of a successful entrepreneur.
