Coming up first on the #MorningAir with our Host, Jamie Meloni was Andrew Gold, Ph.D.! Andrew is a Serial Entrepreneur and a Professor at Hillsborough Community College and the University of South Florida and the University of Tampa. A New York Native, Andrew spoke to us about the origins of his passion for business, learning at a young age the stock market trade, he eventually made his way to becoming an entrepreneur by wanting to help non profits with their technology needs! Fast forwarding a few years, and today he is a Professor at three Universities here in the Tampa Bay Areas! His core areas of research interest include using social entrepreneurship to reach at-risk students, the effects of moral suasion on academic dishonesty, and the lean startup methodology and its effect on entrepreneurial venture success. He wants to let our listeners know about the Entrepreneurship program at Hillsborough Community College, which helps students understand the processes of founding, owning, and operating their own businesses with hands on experience!
