Eric Crown: Former Fortune 500 Founder of Insight and Executive Producer for TMNT

Eric Crown: Former Fortune 500 Founder of Insight and Executive Producer for TMNT

I had the great opportunity to meet with Mr. Crown, former founder and CEO of Insight Enterprises. He graduated Arizona State University with a Computer Information Systems degree. With only a credit card cash advance, he was able to launch his business of buying and selling PC’s at 22 years old. At the age of 29, he took Insight public and brought it to a billion dollars in revenue a few years later. His company was listed in the Fortune 500, and Inc recognized Insight as one fastest growing companies and best places to work. Currently, Mr. Crown invests in several companies and spends his time in the entertainment space. Recently, he was the executive producer for the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Sylvain Bitton and David Jarrett: The Masterminds Behind Warwick, Aventine, Beso, and Les Deux in Los Angeles

Sylvain Bitton and David Jarrett: The Masterminds Behind Warwick, Aventine, Beso, and Les Deux in Los Angeles

Just a few months ago, I had the opportunity of sitting down with two of the greatest minds in the nightlife business. Sylvain Bitton and David Jarrett are a part of a nightlife and hospitality group that currently own two restaurants (Aventine and Beso) and one of the most popular night lounges in LA, Warwick. I don’t believe I’ve ever met someone like Sylvain, who radiates energy. Building long-lasting relationships is so second-nature to him. In the hour that we were sitting at Aventine, several people came up to Sylvain, just to say hi! David Jarrett is the powerhouse on the business side. He handles a majority of the business operations for their group. His experience extends to working for the top restaurants in the world. He turned a concept of a sushi place called Geisha House, into a worldwide phenomenon. Overall, I believe this interview will provide a lot of insight into the business of building relationships, but also give you a new perspective. Questions I ask: What were your responsibilities as an intern at Dolce? When you were in college, did you know you wanted to be in the hospitality business? How do you find investors and how do you get them behind your idea, as a young college student? What’s the most valuable lesson that you’ve learned? If tomorrow, you lost everything you had, where would you go and what would you do? Why do you think the customers are coming in, staying, and keep coming back? Have you had a memorable encounter with someone that you had worked with or met at one of your venues?... read more
