FABricate Kickoff Recap

Davis Knox, Co-Founder of Fire & Flavor joined us on Tuesday, September 5th to talk a little bit about how owning a company is something he's always had a vision for. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 1998, he started working under entrepreneurs. He says "if you want to be an entrepreneur, you need to work for an entrepreneur."

After Davis shared the wisdom of creating a startup, our friends from the UGA Entrepreneurship Program, Idea Accelerator Program, and Innovation Gateway shared a little bit about what they do for students and people in the community with ideas and startups.

We also shared what's next on your "to-do list" of becoming an entrepreneur through FABricate.
