Meet Ash Kumra, a two-time White House award winner, speaker, author, and former talk show host. After launching a handful of businesses that lacked real substance and purpose, Kumra has reversed his approach to entrepreneurship to lead with the consumer first–and it’s rewarding him more than ever.
Kumra’s journey to entrepreneurship began when he spontaneously gave a speech to his entire college fraternity for the chance to speak at a nation-wide Greek conference–and won. While the other contenders spoke for minutes on end, Kumra kept it short and sweet, with the unforgettable words, “I eat, drink, and sleep greek life,” before dropping the mic and exiting stage.
In a recent interview with Business Innovators Magazine the company’s founder, Ash Kumra said, “I wanted to create an entrepreneur media platform to showcase the stories of our heroes and also highlight the updates that the young and hungry entrepreneurs globally are doing.”
The company mission is to unite the entrepreneurship ecosystem with a democratized platform for entrepreneurship news, original video programming, and e-commerce products to help an entrepreneur become successful.
In his first business, Ash Kumra, co-founder of online community DreamItAlive.com, recalls dealing with a toxic business partner who he ultimately had to let go.
