At its Wednesday, Nov. 5, luncheon meeting, Venture Connectors will host Tendai Charasika and Bobby Ferreri, two former economic development executives who have taken what they learned in their roles with Greater Louisville Inc. to now lead successful startup ventures. Charasika and Ferreri are former executive directors of GLI’s EnterpriseCorp, the entrepreneurship arm of the region’s leading economic development organization that is dedicated to fostering high-potential, early-stage companies. Both say their experiences with GLI are what inspired them to “just do it,” and strike out on their own.
Charasika and Ferreri will talk about their work at GLI, why they decided to take the leap toward entrepreneurship and how they continue to apply the knowledge they gained from supporting the Louisville entrepreneurial community to their new roles. There will also be a Q&A session after their presentation.
