The Startup Grind: My Year in Review | By Neha Kumari

Startups seem so glamorous these days, don’t they? We have all read the familiar narrative of an awkward twenty-something tucked away in his dorm, hacking on the next million dollar, or if he’s lucky, billion dollar platform that is sure to disrupt an entire industry. We see headlines of some of the most outrageous startup ideas being funded and achieving astronomical valuations pre-profit.

You, Me, and that Mentor | By Nitasha Happy

As a freshman university student, I wasn’t confident in the direction I wanted my career to go. Of course there were students who knew exactly what they wanted to do and had mapped out every step of their academic journey. I wish I had been equally as inspired, but I joined many of my peers on a journey of confusion and slow progression from one faculty … Continue reading You, Me, and that Mentor | By Nitasha Happy

3 Worthwhile Government Resources Your Company Isn’t Taking Advantage Of | By Nenad Dumanovic

It’s rather obvious that regulatory barriers, taxes, and legal hurdles are no friend of the aspiring entrepreneur. The challenge of creating a product from scratch and building a successful company from nothing is more than strenuous enough without the added burden of tax and regulatory compliance. At best, a lot of entrepreneurs ignore the government and operate as if it doesn’t exist; at worst, many entrepreneurs … Continue reading 3 Worthwhile Government Resources Your Company Isn’t Taking Advantage Of | By Nenad Dumanovic

Welcome to Business at The Wanderer | By Neha Kumari

“I’m not a businessman, I’m a business, man.” My hip-hop fascination aside, for me, this is one of the most powerful and empowering proclamations, demonstrating that success in business involves building your brand and constantly fighting complacency. Having business acumen doesn’t mean that you need to be a finance graduate, or have years of experience running a Fortune 500 company. Case in point, Jay-Z has … Continue reading Welcome to Business at The Wanderer | By Neha Kumari

The 2015 iMedia Conference Recap | By Elliot Rose

In typical Gen Y fashion, I learned of the iMEDIA Conference while creeping LinkedIn, when Ameet Khabra, Search Engine Strategist for Top Draw Inc., posted that she was sharing her presentation titled @AdWordsGirl: Why I Love AdWords and You Should Too. After visiting iMedia’s website, I messaged Ameet and she let me know her presentation was sure to leave my #CurrentMood ‘blissful’. The iMEDIA Conference was started three years ago by … Continue reading The 2015 iMedia Conference Recap | By Elliot Rose

From Pipe Dreams to Hoop Dreams | By Elliot Rose

  Sunny’s senior year of highschool was a basketball player’s dream: he was a starter playing the top of his game, recruited by a handful  schools.
