Turning Your Failures into New Beginnings in Boulder, Colorado | Jake Hurwitz

Today, on the last episode of the Soul of America Tour, we are joined by Jake Hurwitz. He shares his story of starting a student led creative agency, discovering his passion and picking himself back up after failure.

As a senior in college, inspired by connecting students and business leaders, Jake launched a creative agency with big plans for it to take off and go viral. When it didn’t, he began researching the ways he went wrong. After remodeling and re-marketing their system, the company was launched once again. When tne business didn’t pick up the way Jake planned and his co-founder left the company, he found himself missing his “flow.”

After a two and a half year journey building that company, he found a way to get his flow back and has moved onto the next chapter in his life. He now works with Boulder Bits, a startup studio helping companies thrive.

This week on Small Business War Stories, Jake Hurwitz joins us from Boulder, Colorado.

Three reasons to tune in this week: 

  • Learn what Jake did to get his “flow” back after tough times in his personal life and business.
  • Hear about the way Jake and Pablo met and influenced each other along their business journey.
  • Discover how Jake empowers other companies with his current project.
