Today, during flex, 2004 alumnus Chris Spinelli joined current students to talk about entrepreneurship and owning a small business. Chris is the owner and co-founder of Roc Brewing Co. a local craft brewery and bar. During his session, Chris emphasized that students who want to start their own business should follow their passions, rather than chase money. He spoke about the ups and downs of being a small business owner, what it’s like to work for yourself, and the importance of strong networking skills.
Thank you to Chris for sharing his experience with current Knights and the next generation of business owners! Our next Alumni Career Forum is February 17 featuring Matthew Bazar, ’94 who will be discussing his career in biology and toxicology.
