EX-FINANCE GUY DESIGNS THE PANTS OF SUCCESS

 

Entrepreneurship & Life Passions with Andy Dunn

CEO/Co-founder of Bonobos


Hudson Hotel (Hudson Room)
Thursday April 23, 2009
6:30 - 8:30PM
356 West 58th Street

 

Laid off?
Tired of your job?

Stuck with your MBA?

Is it crazy to start a business in this economy?

Join the AFLSE and the Brown Club in New York for an exclusive evening with entrepreneurial superstar Andy Dunn, Stanford GSB ‘07. Attendees will learn the finer points of going through a startup and business planning and hear Andy’s very personal journey that led him to leave a promising career as an investor in private equity and venture capital to pursue his passion for entrepreneurship.

 

A Chicago native, Andy Dunn is the co founder and chief executive of Bonobos.  He has been featured in several publications including The Wall Street Journal, Inc., Vanity Fair, and The New York Times.

 

Andy founded Bonobos with fellow Stanford GSB classmate Brian Spaly because they could not find pants that fit well.  Seeing an opportunity, they sought to create pants that fit and look better for men and to challenge traditional retail space through fantastic customer service with paid shipping on returns and no questions asked (think Zappos for pants).

  

Please note that this event will feature Bonobos products and trunk show.

 

Cost: $38 per person (SPACE LIMITED!!!)
         
$45 for walk-ins
Time:
Reception -       6:30 - 7PM
Talk and Q&A - 7 - 8:30PM

 

Hors d’oeuvres and beverages are included in ticket price.
