How (and Why) My Business Started During the Great Recession, with Chris Kelly
Contrary to popular belief, recessions are ideal times for entrepreneurs to begin building their startups.
Chris Kelly, who co-founded amulti-million dollar business in 2009 during the "Great Recession," understands this better than most anyone else. He is the only person to ever be twice recognized in Inc. Magazine’s “30 Under 30” list of Most Promising Young Entrepreneurs and was a part of the Founder Institute's inaugural cohort over 10 years ago.
In the webinar "How (and Why) My Business Started in a Recession," held on April 9th, 2020, Chris shared with founders insights into what it was like building his successful startup during hard economic times. He and Founder Institute Co-Founder Jonathan Greechang also encouraged entrepreneurs and answered questions about beginning startups during a time with high unemployment. Over 1,000 people registered for this event, and viewers who participated in the chat tuned in from around the world, including: Burkina Faso, Kenya, Slovakia, Lebanon, Serbia, Cyprus, Turkey, Iran, the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Estonia, China, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Panama, and the US.
