Holiday Party + a Panel on Rethinking the Hustle Mentality

December 17, 2018, 10:00 PM UTC – December 18, 2018, 2:00 AM UTC

It’s time to wrap up 2018 with our Dayton Startup Family. Our last Startup Grind Dayton event of the year will feature a panel of three Dayton entrepreneurs that are rethinking what it means to “hustle” in entrepreneurship. You'll hear their hacks and how vulnerability and balance are changing their lives and their ventures.

About this event

"The hustle", "the grind" - these buzzwords often portray what it means to be a successful, committed entrepreneur in today’s world.

While there’s no doubt that hard work is a critical component to success, three Dayton entrepreneurs - Reka Juhasz (paperreka), Joe Harrison (Virtuojo + GRIT) and Jason Harrison (Present Tense Fitness) - are challenging the status quo of “the hustle” in entrepreneurship. 

Rather than seeing exhaustion as a status symbol or sacrificing themselves, their health, and their relationships in the pursuit of making their vision a reality, Reka, Joe and Jason will share their authentic stories - the good, the bad and the ugly - as well as hacks on:

  • How to be honest, open and vulnerable in the struggles of being an entrepreneur
  • How to work smarter, not harder
  • How to maintain yourself, your purpose and passion in spite of “the grind”

For $10 you'll get dinner from a local business, an enlightening discussion and a great conversations with Dayton's finest. 

We can't wait to see you at this end-of-year celebration.
