Entrepreneurial Lessons Learned from Shark Tank
The San Pedro Chamber of Commerce brings back the Munch & Learn Series with the topic: Entrepreneurial Lessons Learned from Shark Tank, from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 13, at the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium in San Pedro.
David Chodosh: An industrial designer, inventor, and entrepreneur, David has learned how to focus his unique creativity on user interaction, whether designing novelty toys, educational games, or other digital media. After realizing his “calling” as a product guy, David attended Art Center College of Design, and became a toy designer first at Hallmark, then Mattel Toys. After being “downsized” a few times, and hearing the entrepreneurial clarion call, he decided to turn his own a dream into an invention, and “The Fizz Cup” was born. This ice cream float cup soon found its way onto TV’s Shark Tank, and is now distributed internationally. In addition to owning and operating The Fizz biz, David is co-founder of MyBeanJar, the first end-to-end mobile rewards platform for smartphones.
Members pay $10. Yet-to-be Members pay $15.
