The Weekend Word w/ Gregory Nesmith
E112. UNpacking The Startup Journey. 9.12.20
September 12, 2020 05:43 AM PDT
Yesterday I submitted an application to the Venture Lab at Wharton “Venture Initiation Program-Xcelerate (VIP-X)” for startups. The application required a pitch deck, filling out a VIP-X questionnaire, and a two-minute video. This was my video (https://youtu.be/HmVqKjXQL6Q). I guess it wasn’t too bad since I found out last night that I’ve made it to the interview review round next week! VIP-X provides participants: one-on-one advising, seed funding, advanced entrepreneurship workshops, and individualized attention to get participants ready to launch their venture. Fingers crossed I have more good news to share later this month.

On the morning of Memorial Day 5/25/20, Steven Jackson (Co-Founder at ALLin Lifestyle: https://bit.ly/2GdpQiT) interviewed me about my return to Philly, my work with Bridges 2 Wealth, and what’s next for UNderdogstuff. It was an overall conversation on unpacking the journey. One of the questions Steven asked me was about my morning routine. I shared that my mornings include time for prayer and meditation. He then asked if I would share what I say in the mornings… The audio is my daily prayer and the video (by ALLin Lifestyle and originally aired here: https://youtu.be/O_eHxBPY1qA) is what has been happening daily since Memorial Day. *NEW FALL 2020!* The Weekend Word w/ Gregory Nesmith, powered by UNderdogstuff.
