Learn from from Aaron Newman, one of Rochester’s latest Success Stories

Aaron, the Co-founder/CEO of CloudCheckr will share his journey of scrappy start-ups to recently raising $50 million.

He’ll explore some of his lesson such as: 

Surrounding yourself with people who are smarter than you are and listening to what they have to say

How Aaron began his career as an entrepreneur and how he credits being at the right place at the right time for much the success in his first startup

Why the first company is the hardest and how this manifested for Aaron in his journey

Why timing is one of the most critical elements in creating a successful startup

How Aaron got the idea for starting the company CloudChecker (his fourth successful business) and what the company does

Seizing opportunities when you recognize them

The importance of responsiveness to the customers and their needs, even if it takes your business in a different direction, so you can give your customers what they need

How little failures along the way can ultimately drive your business forward

Why Aaron always works with a cofounder when beginning a new startup and how it can help you to do it as well

How Aaron believes that sometimes the most important attributes someone has are the craziness to get on board with the idea and the stubbornness to see it through

Registration is free for members of the Avanti Entrepreneur Network.
