Founders Series – Entrepreneur Andrew Pugliese turns his passion into potential

February 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Entrepreneur Andrew Pugliese And Bugz Rule

It’s the month of love, and Station Innovation sponsored by Spark Growth would love to invite you to our Founders’ Series where we look at harnessing the power of data, changing markets, and the potential of the pivot. Join us in newly examining your mission, values, and intent as we strive toward stronger business practices and better results.

Entrepreneur Andrew Pugliese And Bugz Rule

Meet Bradenton entrepreneur Andrew Pugliese. He’s parlayed his passion into a business, something many seasoned entrepreneurs seek to do over the course of their lives. What’s extraordinary in his case is that he’s achieved this already at the age of 16! What’s his passion you ask? Bugs!

According to Andrew, most bugs are looked at as being scary, disgusting or dangerous. It’s his mission help others understand why they are so important to our ecosystems and bridge the scaredy-cat-gap with his experience and knowledge of them. Andrew says he’s never been afraid of creatures that would likely scare the daylights out of most folks. In a recent interview with Sarasota Magazine, he stated, “There’s no reason to be afraid of them. If there’s no reason for them to harm you, they won’t. You just have to be careful with them.”

Discover his unique way of marketing his services while you network, learn, and mingle with fellow professionals from Manatee & Sarasota counties and the surrounding area all along the Innovation Coast. Along with hosting Andrew, we regularly feature informative and exciting events with engaging speakers handpicked from the area’s best and brightest people, all of which will propel your skills and businesses forward.

Learn fresh perspectives and new innovations in technology, business, education, and more. Mark your calendar and be prepared at each session to learn new tools and tactics and arrive early for business networking opportunities.
