The Entrepreneurs Association at UC Santa Barbara is a business, entrepreneurship, and technology club. They recently invited me to speak to a room of their members during a Tuesday evening meeting. I told a few stories to give context to the type of company Oniracom is, and the range of skills I've developed as spanning our 15 years of operations. The emphasis was to have a casual conversation, so I fielded sharp and engaging questions from the group.
My perception is the students I've interacted with today are quite a bit more entrepreneurial than when I was at UCSB. Many already have startups in action, others are teaming up to explore ideas. The future is bright -- these millennials are showing up, forming a club, and sharing ideas in the spirit of innovation.
