About Ben

I am currently attending Northwestern University in the Masters of Engineering Management program. I plan to get heavily involved in the startup scene in Chicago and am very excited for what the future holds. I cant think of anything I would rather do than put my time and energy into starting a company take off. I am truly sick of my 9-5 job with poor leadership structure and no real plans to grow its business. I do not think a corporate desk job is for me. I am ready to take risks and to spread my wings a little.
