Today we are thrilled to unveil the first video in our Big Omaha 2011 Video Series, brought to you by CoSentry.
Kicking it off is Marc Eckō, the founder and chief creative officer of Marc Eckō Enterprises, a billion dollar full-scale global fashion and lifestyle company, and the founder of Artists & Instigators, a venture innovation company.
In this talk, Marc shared his background and entrepreneurial journey, from Lakewood, N.J to his travels literally around the world and building the Eckō Unlimited brand into a billion dollar business.
Marc also shared more about his new venture, Artists & Instigators, in which he and his team aim to build the “AARP of entrepreneurship” and make the A&I name and ampersand synonymous with the startup life similar to how the Nike swoosh is synonymous with sports.
To read a recap of Marc’s talk, see our post:
