Startup Stories : Buzz Digital (Buzz Referrals)

In the chaos of learning about how to build companies, practice the perfect pitch while juggling mentor and investor meetings and successfully launch a successful business, we often forget to learn about the personal journey of an entrepreneur.

Last year, I started on a quest to dive into the minds and lives of these entrepreneurs. To find that moment that I like to call the ‘Spark’! The spark that ignites the passion for entrepreneurship, defy all norms and set on a sojourn of invincible conviction and infinite optimism.

With the help of my friends at Microsoft; we were able to put together a two day production at the Microsoft Technology Center. It was amazing sitting behind the camera and hearing these ambitious rockstars share their journey!
