About this Series:
LaunchYU has partnered with York University's Division of Advancement to bring you an at home edition of this series which features top York University alumni entrepreneurs.

These talks are meant to INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, and EDUCATE the audience on the realities of launching a startup in today’s world.

About this Talk:

From the young age of just 13, Abtin was able to make just about anything go viral. And by the age of 21, his digital marketing savviness translated into a self-built agency, which unfortunately later fell apart. This is the story of the rise and fall (and rise again) of Abtin's agency and what he's learned as an entrepreneur. Abtin will talk about the importance of diversifying your revenue streams not only as an individual, but also as a business owner, especially when it comes to social media.
